Education is a high priority of Warren County residents. Everyone is encouraged to start education early through the Ready for Kindergarten nationwide classes as well as the Books from Birth, Dolly Parton Imagination Library. Warren County promotes the Read Twenty program. Reading twenty minutes a day improves listening skills, builds early literacy skills, prepares children for Kindergarten, improves math skills, and it can also improve relationships with your children.
Parental involvement is stressed at all schools. Active Parent-Teacher Organizations (PTO) insures community involvement in the education process. A strong business and education partnership provides an atmosphere where graduating students are prepared for the world of work. All public schools are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
Beginning with the graduating class of 2015 the TN Promise, a scholarship and mentoring program, will help support graduates by removing the financial burden of an associate's degree program. Students can use the scholarship at any of the state's 13 community colleges, 27 colleges of applied technology, or any other eligible institutions offering an associate's degree program.
