Having just moved to Murfreesboro myself less than two years ago, with a daughter about to enter high school, that was a big issue for me, too! We came from a world-class school system, and I wanted to make sure that the schools that I brought her to could keep her momentum to graduate with honors and transition into college with no problem. We could have lived anywhere in the Nashville area, and intentionally chose Murfreesboro for its quality schools, conveniences, easy access to the airport and points north and south. What made Murfreesboro a winner for us was the "hometown" feel, and the affordability of housing. Having MTSU here also provides a great energy. We chose to be in the Blackman schools, but there are many other great schools, depending on what you are looking for - Oakland High School will be starting its International Baccalaureate program next year.
Good luck, and welcome to Americas Biggest Little City....thats still friendly.
