Why join Hamilton County Schools?

We're Committed to Excellence

Across our 79 schools, our leaders, teachers and support staff are committed to excellence. Our teachers and leaders led us to become a Level 5 school district in Tennessee, with over 1/3 of our schools designated as Tennessee reward schools.
In 2020, our graduates topped $121 in scholarship dollars, heading to all corners of Tennessee and to the Ivy League. This past summer, our community leaders launched HCS Ed Connect, bringing internet access to 28,500 of our students, at no charge to their families.
Excellence is a part of who we are and why we are working to become the best.
