Welcome to Hamilton County Schools!

Whatever the interest of a child, you will find a school to challenge and excite your young learner in Hamilton County Schools. The district features excellent traditional schools, choice schools, and an ever-growing number of Future Ready Institutes, that will bring out the best in a young builder with a future in engineering, an inquisitive child seeking to find answers to modern science problems, a budding musician yearning for the stage, or a child still searching for their passion.

Elementary school begins a child’s journey of knowledge that will prepare the young learner for success in life. Hamilton County Schools has 41 elementary schools with grades kindergarten through fifth-grade in excellent traditional schools and theme focused magnet schools. Tennessee Voluntary Pre-K classes are offered at 20 of these schools.

Future Ready Preps in middle schools provides a new focus to personalize learning to meet every child where they are academically, expose them to a variety of potential career options, and support the social and emotional learning of middle school children. Academic performance in district middle school is the focus with teachers spearheading the instructional and cultural shifts required for a totally new middle school experience.

High schools feature Future Ready Institutes which are schools within a school incorporating a small school atmosphere with a career theme focus for students who have a vision for their future. Future Ready Institutes challenge the traditional approach to education in high schools with the goal for students to clearly understand why a lesson is important and how the knowledge can be used in the future in a college classroom or a career. Hamilton County high schools offer advanced academics with International Baccalaureate.
