    Williamson County School System is rated as one of the Best Schools in the Country.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking with Students, Parents and other Teachers for a school system that excels makes teaching here easy.

    ConsThe only challenge I faced working for Williamson Co School System was only working part time. As needed basis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work!

    Primary focus is students.

    Teacher (Current Employee)

    ProsWilliamson County is dedicated to growing students academically and as people. The teachers really care about their students, and it's great to be a part of that environment. The quality of professional development is improving.

    ConsThere are too many one size fits all policies. The stat-wide TEAM evaluation rubric is not teacher friendly. Some administrators are influenced too easily by parent complaints instead of by what is best for the student.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    18 years and still going

    Counselor (Current Employee) Franklin, TN

    ProsI love what I do and the people I work with. WCS is probably the best public school district in Middle Tennessee as far as student body and administration, and one of the best in the entire state.

    ConsAny major frustrations I encounter are going to be had anywhere you teach in Tennessee. The evaluation system is a headache and there is far too much emphasis on standardized testing. Exactly how happy you are in an individual school is probably going to depend a great deal on how you feel about that particular school's administration.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo all in your power to let the teacher's teach! Shield them as much as possible from all the political hodge podge that bombards education these days.

    not supportive, growth oriented environment at all. very clique

    Bus Driver (Current Employee) Franklin, TN

    ProsPay & benefits for part time.

    ConsBetter not get sick during school hours. You are forced to work even if unsafe to drive. better be in the clique of you'll never advance. Very unfair, good-ol-boy system.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet impartial management and out w/good-ol-boys & gals!
