Baseball and Basketball are the only two sports we've been perennially good at. Otherwise, until 2 seasons ago, our best year was a 6-4 season in my junior year that ended in the state semis with a home loss to Munford HS outside of memphis. Lost 10-9 at home and a shot at the Clinic Bowl. I still remember the goob that planted the Munford flag on our 50 yard line and how many people wanted to kill him that night.

Montgomery Bell Academy--long time traditional private school. It is all male but I still think MBA is the premier school for athletics and academics. The "companion" girls school is Harpeth Halls. Great academics and solid athletics.

Didn't Reece Witherspoon go to Harpeth?

Rutherford County is supposed to have good academic high schools (particularly, Siegel and Blackman) and is rumored to have the best football conference in Tennessee--though, it is pretty clear by now that Maryville is the best program in the state because Maryville has beaten Rutherford County area teams in the playoffs the last several years. Riverdale is the historical football school but Siegel and Blackman have been very good recently as well. Oakland has also been fairly good. In Williamson County, I think Brentwood High School is supposed to be a good public high school and I think they have a decent football program. I am not sure if there are other similar schools in Williamson County but there probably are because that is the highest income county in Tennessee. I am not sure about Sumner and Wilson counties. Some other people may have more knowledge than I do about the other areas and some different thoughts on my list.
Spot-on analysis.

Williamson county in general is a great place to live. Brentwood HS has a pretty good football team year in and year out (very costly real estate compared to the rest of tn). Centennial HS has not in the past had a good program but this year did better than usual( less expensive but still pricey but there is some affordable stuff) Franklin HS historically has had decent teams ( same as Centennial prices for 180k-you name it). Ravenwood HS is a newer school ~10yrs and I think they have done well one year(homes in Brentwood) Independence HS is <10 yrs and they are building a decent program( much more affordable homes). There are other schools in the county but those are the bigger schools. THe private schools mentioned Ensworth and MBA are $20k/year in tuition. BA I think is a little less.

Ensworth is about the same. The two schools are very similar except that Ensworth has females and laptops.
