Rutherford County Schools consistently ranks among the best school districts in Tennessee and has outpaced national rankings on a number of measures. Rutherford County is one of the fastest growing school districts in Tennessee and the fifth largest behind those in Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga.
Since the 2004-2005 school year, Rutherford County Schools has added more than 12,000 students for a total enrollment of approximately 43,500. During that time, the district has opened nine new schools and completed additions / renovations at 13 other schools.
Despite the county's tremendous growth rate and the accompanying challenges, Rutherford County Schools has served as a model for many other districts in the areas of academics, planning and safety measures.
