The two newest schools coming to Williamson County Schools are in Brentwood and Thompson’s Station.

Both hope to be open for the next school year.

And both, as of now, still need names. A WCS Board Naming Committee has taken suggestions from the community and narrowed down the possibilities to four for each school.

Brentwood

Names Under Consideration: Eastwood, Jordan, Pleasant Hill and Split Log

Those are the options for the K-8 school at 9714 Split Log Road in Brentwood.

The school will be modeled similar to the design of Clovercroft Elementary and is expected to open in time for the 2018-19 school year.

The county commission approved $6.09 million for finishing construction of the school in June. The school district bought the land in February for $8.6 million.

Thompson’s Station

Names Under Consideration: Thompson’s Station, Clayton, Harpeth and Constitution

Those are the choices for the K-8 school going up at 2436-2438 Critz Lane. Site work on the school began last August.

The $38.7 million project, being built by Biscan Construction, should be open by August 2018.

A decision on the names could be made at the September school board meeting on the 18th.

  1. Really, Eastwood, Jordan? Where would these names come from? What about Foster? Mr and Mrs Foster bought all that land in the early 60s and had no children. Left their estate to nieces and nephews who’ve made a fortune on it, so why not name this school after them? Foster Elementary should be the only name considered and been put into the sale of the land. Just like the Smiths did for their mom in selling the land for the park at the end of Split Log to Brentwood. I’m ashamed no one made this effort to name the school after the Foster’s. After all, developers hounded Mrs Foster for years to sell her property.
