Hi,

I am seeking opinion on M'boro schools. I have been reading and understand that the Siegel and blackman schools are very popular. We are soon going to start looking for homes in M'boro and want to buy in a good school district. Besides the above two schools, can anyone let me know how the below schools rate and is it worth to focus on the below school districts. Our budget is from 200-240K.

a)Mitchell Neilson Primary
b) Barfield
c)Wilson
d) Cason Lane

Thanks in Advance

a) You might have trouble finding something in your price range (good thing). Most homes in that zone are much lower. The school is a neighborhood school, the last of a dying breed...at least here. They probably won't do as well on standardized tests and have a much higher percentage of students on free/reduced lunch, but from spending time in the school and w/the kids I think it's great. I would have no reservations about buying in this zone.

b,c,d) I have spent any time in, so I can't give any personal opinions, although all three are well liked (as most all schools here are). Barfield and Wilson and closer to the country and Cason Lane is kind of cookie cutter.

There's a good chance you'll be happy w/any of them.

Cason Lane is a good school. It is on the west side with newer homes. Very nice area. Also look at Scales Elementary. It is just off of St. Andrews and is also a good school.

Another opinion needed. I visited the north side of the town and prefer it over the west. What is your opinion about the Roger Reeves elem school? I hear it is getting rezoned to the john pittard area. Should i buy a home there expecting good education. thanks

The John Pittard Elementary School would probably be fine, though I'm not sure of how it will be zoned in relation to the students who already attend Reeves Rogers Elementary. I would assume it will probably be bigger and some students currently zoned for Erma Siegel may now be zoned for John Pittard.

Did you find a home in DeJaurnette area near where the school is being built? Another north Murfreesboro elementary school is Erma Siegel Elementary.

That's a really nice area (I live about a mile away). I used to run and bike all around the Pitts Lane, DeJaurnette, Alexander Blvd, and Osborne Lane area.

Where are you moving from? Have you checked out Reeves-Rogers website?

I second the Scales Elementary nomination. They take some awesome field trips there, and the staff never misses an opportunity to infuse their students with real-world knowledge.
