Why is Knoxville a Nice Place to Live?

Living in Knoxville puts you at the center of its unique combination of natural beauty, outdoor adventure, and culture. Said another way, the city is “a nature-loving-adventure-seeking-artsy-kinda-town.”

Knoxville offers high-quality elementary through public schools within the Knox County Public School District. It is committed to excellence in foundational skills, great educators in every school, career empowerment and preparation, and success for every student.
