Best Public Schools in Murfreesboro, TN


The city of Murfreesboro, Tennessee is home to 32 schools, including 21 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, and 7 high schools, which are part of the Rutherford County and Murfreesboro school districts. These districts are ranked 33rd and 77th out of 139 districts in the state, respectively, and are rated 4 and 2 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

Several schools stand out in the data, including Central Magnet School, which is ranked 2nd out of 384 high schools in Tennessee and has received a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years. Other top-performing schools are Discovery School, ranked 2nd out of 1,020 elementary schools in the state, and McFadden School of Excellence, ranked 3rd out of 1,020 elementary schools. These schools consistently outperform the state and district averages on standardized tests.

However, the data also reveals a significant achievement gap between the highest-performing and lowest-performing schools in the area.

This suggests that some schools may be struggling to provide equitable educational opportunities for all students.
