My husband and I, and another couple (the husband of which my husband is going into business with), are moving to Nashville this summer. We'd like to live relatively close to each other. Our friends have a five-year-old who is starting school in September, and so wherever we live has to have good elementary schools. We'd rather not live outside Nashville, since the clients our husbands will be working with will be mostly in Nashville, and we'd like to keep travel to a minimum if possible. We've lived there before, and are familiar with the area, but never paid any attention to the schools there.
We'd like to live in an area that has good elementary schools, but is also a relatively fun place for young couples, and isn't too expensive to live in. People who I've asked about this have recommended Williamson County schools as being the best bet, but we can't afford Brentwood and anywhere else seems a bit too far away from Nashville. So, I'm wondering if all Davidson County public schools are really that bad, or if there are areas or individual schools which are good?
