One of the best assets to Nolensville is the high ranking Williamson County School District. The county's education system is praised for its low student-to-teacher ratios and outstanding standardized test scores. In fact, the school system has recently received the Governor's A+ Award for Excellence in Education.
Servicing Nolensville are three elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. Private schools in the area include Battle Ground Academy, Brentwood Academy, Eagles Nest Academy, Franklin Classical School and Willow Hall. The Franklin branch of Columbia State Community College is also nearby as is O'More College of Design. Nolensville is a short commute to Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, which is the second largest state university. Being a short drive to Nashville, there are numerous distinguished colleges and universities as well as community colleges and technical/trade schools. Included on this long list are Vanderbilt University, Belmont University and David Lipscomb University.
Williamson is a blossoming county with a diverse economy. The expansion and continued development of commercial and industrial parks is luring more and more Fortune 500 companies to the area. Combine these companies with the already long list of private and family-owned businesses in the area and it is easy to see why living in Nolensville affords residents a tremendous opportunity to find employment within minutes of their home.
The spillover effect from the large city of Nashville and the shopping hub of Cool Springs has had tremendous effects on this small city. The local housing market is thriving and the Williamson County Beautification Project continues to enhance the area with parks and green space.
