You’ll find that your neighbors in Robertson County share your belief that education is important, and their expectations are what have made our local schools successful.
Robertson County Schools are community-based, serving over 11,000 students in 21 schools. Zoned districts within the system allow clusters of elementary and middle school feeders for our five high schools which encourage class bonds that often connect students from Pre-K through graduation. Our confidence in the value of career/technical training and higher education have led to some amazing partnerships with state level educational institutions that make access to higher ed opportunities available within our county’s borders.
Preparing our children for the future is a priority and we have been investing in and growing those opportunities for Robertson County students:
A passionate commitment to excellence in our public schools and drawn local classes from Austin Peay State University and Volunteer State Community College to a local higher education facility, Highland Crest College Campus, along with extensions of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology at Nashville in Springfield and Portland.
Robertson County’s business community and local schools created a workforce-readiness partnership (Robertson Education Initiative, REdI) encompassing a wide range of programs to support, challenge, and improve education and make sure students gain the real-world skills they need to become effective employees and capable leaders.
Partnering with Robertson County Schools and our Chambers of Commerce, we host a variety of events for middle and high school students to help them assess their career interests and aptitudes and learn more about local career opportunities and training programs:
