About Crockett Elementary School
The sleepy suburban town of Brentwood, Tennessee came to life in the summer of 1990 when the second elementary school in town was being constructed in an open pasture off Crockett Road. This town had only known one school on the eastern side of I-65, Lipscomb Elementary, for around 100 years so the news of a new school made headlines. The lush pastures with cows and horses, the hillside panoramic views, low crime rate and close access to the city, Nashville, made Brentwood a desirable location to raise a family. News got out quickly about this hidden treasure in Williamson County and the incredible growth rate is still occurring. With the addition of more jobs in town and in Nashville, Crockett soon expanded its size with an additional wing of ten classrooms. Additional growth resulted in new schools: Edmondson in 1994, Kenrose in 1999, and Sunset in 2006.
To accommodate the continuing growth, the school system was pressed to provide the finest of educators. Currently leading the staff of professionals is the school’s fifth principal, Ms. Bronwyn Rector. All the teachers are dedicated instructors exposed to the latest professional training programs in all subjects. Reading and math specialists work hand in hand with classroom teachers to keep Crockett’s TCAP test scores consistently at or near the top in Williamson County.
In addition to academics, students are exposed to the latest technology with laptop computers and InterWrite boards in every classroom. Character building is addressed in guidance while physical education twice a week includes units on archery, skating, and bowling. Healthy lunch choices promote healthy bodies and minds. Students have access to the rich supply of non-fiction and fiction offerings in the library filled with the most exciting books on the market.
Most Crockett families come here as transplants from other states or countries with their companies. The hustle and bustle of students enjoying education at its finest interacts with educators and volunteer parents. The birth of Crockett in a sleepy pasture is a vision from the past as Woodland Middle School neighbors to the north, Holy Family nestles to the east, and a picturesque neighborhood cuddles its south border. The principal proudly tells new families that when you come to Crockett, one of Williamson County’s finest schools, you are not only going to get the finest of educations, you are now family.
