I can highly recommend Hendersonville. I moved here from Texas a little over a year ago and my wife said she is not moving again. Franklin is the grade A suburb, Hendersonville is the next notch below, say a B+. Schools are very good including a magnet school ranked as one of the top few schools in the state. It was ranked as a top ten place to raise a family by Family Magazine a few years ago as well.

There are 56 houses between 150K and 180K there now.

I also didnt see where you had a job lined up because that will make a huge difference as to where you want to live.

You didn't, not at all. I live in Mt. Juliet and I occasionally chime in with the "Brentwood/Franklin aren't the only great places to live around here" viewpoint, but it can come across as reverse snobbery if care is not taken! Truth is, one of the things I love about the Nashville metro area is, so much of it is a pleasant place to be.

Default Relocating Too...

We are looking to relocate as well. We have friends in that area, south of Franklin, and they love it. It's more "country" and less "keeping up with the Joneses". My friends and I all come from an area with big money, and we hated it. Growing up like that is awful, when your buddies are getting brand new cars/trucks for their 16th birthday, high-end clothes, and never having to work for anything. I'm glad, now, for having to want for things... it has made me appreciate everything I have.
My friends in TN love where they are now because it's not all about "granite countertops" and driving the newest model Yukon.... less demanding lifestyle for them and their teenager.
Best of luck to you!

I thought I lived in Franklin, but it seems I was confused. My kids have jobs, didn't get new cars for their birthdays, and we don't have a Yukon or a need to keep up with anyone.

Come on now. There are jerks everywhere, but to imply an entire community is shallow a bit ridiculous, don't you think?

I would recommend the area where Stewarts Creek High School is being built in Rutherford County (next to Williamson County) instead. It's going to be a really good school. The elem. and middle school there are very good.

I agree with the above.

We live in Franklin, have for about 13 years, and live in an average Franklin neighborhood.

My oldest teen son did not get a new car for his birthday and has a job in addition to being self employed.

Although we live in a neighborhood, my boys enjoy the outdoors and just being with family and friends.

Compared to other teens, they have more than others and they have less than others. That is what happens when you start comparing "stuff". My oldest son has been on three missions to another country and has a much better understanding of what is the real value in his life.

Be careful with that broad brush or you will paint yourself into a corner.

Are there jobs to be had for teens in Franklin who want to work?

Yes, tons.

Most of my teen sons' friends have jobs. They include retail, grocery, restaurants like Subway & Chik-fil-A, check-in or lifeguard at country clubs or YMCAs, umpiring youth sports, clean-up/check-in at local sports facilities, etc.

Great list. I'll add a few more-

Babysitting, tutoring, lawn mowing, golf course caddying, countless mall positions, summer rec program help, farm jobs, dog walking, car detailing, etc. I have friends whose kids are handling social media for bands and doing family photography for the summer.
