• About Us

  • Scales Elementary School is part of the Williamson County School District in Middle Tennessee and is located 15 minutes south of Nashville, Tennessee. Our district is a large area consisting of 562 square miles. Our school houses grades Kindergarten through fifth grade and provides safe facilities along with an excellent learning environment.

    After a major renovation to the school property, Scales now has a new office, hallway with 10 new classrooms, and a fully stocked STEM library. The heart of Scales is in its school staff and faculty. At Scales, we pride ourselves on providing a warm and welcoming environment upon arriving in the front door. 

    For over 40 years, Scales has proudly cultivated an environment that fosters growth, creativity, and academic achievement. Our entire school community is grateful to be recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School.

  • School History

    Scales Elementary School was opened in the fall of 1977.  Scales originally served a student population in grades K-6.  Currently, Scales serves the student enrollment in grades K-5.  The students of Scales live primarily in a residential area west of Franklin Rd.  The population and ethnic make-up of Scales is reflective of the community and is of an increasingly diverse cultural and social background.  Scales’ leaders believe the school is an extension of the community and guided by democratic principles, dedicated to enhancing the rights and privileges of citizens, and laying a foundation for leadership.

    Scales Elementary School is proud to offer additional enrichment activities to continually challenge our student population.  During the school year, students participate in several after school programs.   Some of our classes from previous years include: Green Team, Elementary World Language and many more!  Students can also choose to become a part of our Destination Imagination team, where students work together in teams on various projects requiring creative problem solving skills.  Those teams compete and often become recognized as some of the top teams in the state.  We are very proud of our students!

    Stands a school that’s full of promise,

    who’s aims are very high.

    Scales Elementary, we really love you!

    Scales Elementary, you’re the best!
