I am moving to Mt Juliet in August and am looking at both renting and buying. While perusing the available properties I notice some are zoned for Mt Juliet HS while others are zoned for Wilson Central HS. Is there a big difference between the two or is it 6 of one 1/2 dozen of the other? Thanks for the help.

Hi, slederma. I live in Mt. Juliet and have a child in elementary school here. I don't have any direct experience with either school, but I can tell you that I frequently hear from others who've lived here longer that Mt. Juliet High is a much better school than Wilson Central High. I think you would need to live in the northern half of town to be zoned for Mt. Juliet High. If you live in the Providence area on the south side of town, you'll be zoned for Wilson Central.

Welcome to Mt. Juliet! It's an ok place to live if you really, really, really like strictly suburban living.

They're pretty similar. Mt. Juliet High has an advantage in terms of aggregate achievement levels, since the affluent areas near the lake are in that zone; Wilson Central's zone is somewhat more rural by comparison, and you know how scores tend to follow socioeconomics. But in terms of things that will directly affect a student, there's little to differentiate. The buildings and facilities are similar and relatively new, similar course offerings (regular and AP), both are good-sized schools with the usual range of extracurricular activities, etc.

One peculiarity is, because of land availability and/or slightly missed future growth projections when the schools were built, neither school is ideally located. Mt. Juliet High is barely in its own zone and Wilson Central is kind of in the middle of nowhere.
