Review of Germantown, Tennessee


Germantown, TN
Star Rating - 3/3/2006
Germantown is a terrific, albeit expensive, place to live. Virtually no crime-close to a "police state". Housing is steep, but it is truly a beautiful, well-kept suburb. The down side is that it is a suburb of Memphis, a city w/ huge crime problems & political corruption. But if you don't have to travel into Mphs for work, you can find virtually everything you need in Germantown or neighboring suburb of Collierville, except for the sporting events & concerts. We only go into Memphis for Redbird games at the new Autozone Park- it is really a first-rate ball park. Houston High School, which sits on the Germantown/Collierville city line, is an outstanding public school, with an average ACT score of 23.8.

A 23.8 ACT score is not good! 25 is the average for admission to most colleges. For those ranked in the top 100 for US News and World, a 27 or 28 is needed. For Ivy, above 30! Surprised the scores are so low given the income and demographics. Does not suggest great schools.
