Blount County


The schools in Blount County serve a diverse population of students across 21 institutions, including 14 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, 2 high schools, and 1 alternative school. While the schools generally perform above the state average, there is a notable variation in academic achievement, with some standout institutions like Carpenters Elementary School and Samuel Everett School of Innovation significantly outpacing their peers.

The data reveals that Carpenters Elementary and Prospect Elementary are the top-performing elementary schools in the county, consistently ranking among the best in Tennessee. Meanwhile, the Samuel Everett School of Innovation, an alternative school, has exceptional results, with students significantly outperforming the county and state averages across all subject areas and grade levels.

While the schools in Blount County generally have a predominantly white student population, the data suggests a potential correlation between higher per-student spending, lower student-teacher ratios, and better academic outcomes. However, the lack of socioeconomic data makes it difficult to fully assess the impact of factors like family income and parental education on student performance, an important consideration for addressing achievement gaps in the district.
