Wilson County earned straight A’s in Grades 3-8 academic achievement second year in a row. Last year, the district had seven schools in the K-8 range that had received straight As. That rose to 12 schools this year. The twelve schools are Elzie Patton Elementary, Gladeville Elementary, Lakeview Elementary, Mt. Juliet Elementary, Mt. Juliet Middle, Rutland Elementary, Southside, Stoner Creek, Tuckers, WA Wright, West, and West Wilson Middle. 

Wilson County Schools also earned straight A’s in grades 4-8 value added growth with higher gains than last year in math, reading, and science. This is an improvement from two B’s and two A’s in 2012. Social studies saw a decline, but still maintained it’s A status. 

Mt. Juliet High School, Watertown High School and Wilson Central High School have a value added status of above or at the expected growth in all EOCs.
