Rutherford county schools are amazing. The diversity is amazing, academics, college rediness, etc. I would ever switch out of Rutherford county schools because that is the county that I fell in love with. I moved from being angry all the time with drama to smiling everyday because I got placed into one of the best county’s ever. Have I complained? Of course! But whom doesn’t complain about the school they go too? If you want your child to do great, Rutherford county schools is the best direction to go.

Until I went to Eagleville High School, I never really new what involvement meant. Its a smaller school, so if you want to try anthing you can. Ive participated in baseball, student council, pep rally's, and fundraisers. Ive had good relationships with teachers and they know me by name. Eagleville school does not always get the same technologies, choice of classes as newer , bigger schools. Eagleville school also has great community pride and participation. The community supports all sudents from the book fair to Friday night football. I feel very blessed to have attended Eagleville School.
Rutherford county schools are the reason why my family moved to Murfreesboro, Tn. The schools are full of life and as much as they encourage school spirit, education is highly focused on. It is because of their help I graduated high school a year early and am now at an amazing university studying biology. They helped encourage me to be my best self academically and they also focus on their student's mental health. They offer so many programs that help set you up for your future. It really gladdened me to know that my siblings would be going to the same school I went to. Rutherford County Schools are amazing and I would highly recommend one go there.
