Whether you have children or not, local school districts are an important element to keep in mind when looking for a new home. People are drawn to high-ranking school districts to ensure their children get the best education and that can mean a higher resale value in the future for your own home, even if you don’t have children. It also leads to communities and cities where there’s more vitality and options. Fortunately, if you’re looking at Chelsea AL homes, you’re in luck, as Chelsea schools have scored as one of the highest in Alabama.

If you choose to live in the attractive Willow Branch community with homes by Scotch Homes, you’ll be in the Shelby County Schools district. For the 2017-18 school year, which is the most recent school performance report, Shelby County Schools improved their score to 91 from the previous year’s score of 88. Willow Branch is specifically zoned for Chelsea schools. Chelsea Park Elementary School scored 89; Chelsea Middle School scored 92; and Chelsea High School scored 88. Importantly, the 29 schools that make up Shelby County Schools score 95.7 in academic growth, and 94.6 in graduation rate.

The continued growth and improvement of Shelby County Schools and Chelsea schools mean that communities like Willow Branch are the kind of place where people want to raise their families. This family friendly community not only has quality schools to give your children a great chance at a solid education, it’s also designed to be a safe environment with lots of cul de sacs for safe playing and a future clubhouse and pool for fun and exercise. You’re also ideally located to a variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment options, along with a fairly short drive to the Yellowleaf Game Preserve and Old Mountain State Park.

Overall, schools in the area performed impressively on the Alabama State Department of Education’s annual report card.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful experience having our home built by Wayne Scotch and the Scotch Homes Team. They were very patient in helping us get ready to start the project and even helped us find the perfect location. He was always available to help us through each step and to explain everything. Wayne's wife, Stefani, works hard behind the scenes to make sure that orders are placed and deadlines are met. She is also available to answer questions and to make recommendations! We felt that our house was always of the utmost importance to Wayne and his team! Now that the house is finished, we are so glad that we had Scotch Homes do the building. The quality and workmanship in our home is very obvious. Wayne and the entire Scotch Homes team are extremely honest, caring people and their Christian concern is a huge part of their business. There could not be a better company or a better builder anywhere than Scotch Homes. We recommend them highly and we are very grateful that we found them!Jim and Maria Brandt
After living in the same home for 28+ years, we decided to build a home. We feel so fortunate to have contracted with Scotch Homes and Land Development for the project. Scotch Homes listened to what we wanted in our new home, provided house plans that met our needs and made wonderful suggestions throughout the building process. We were amazed at the progress each day when we visited the construction site. Scotch Homes constructed a quality built home that we love, in a very convenient location on a great lot! Their team provided us with contacts for selections of our lighting, flooring, etc, emailed me when selections were due, and provided a valued opinion about selections when I asked for her help. Not only are we thankful that Scotch Homes built our home, we also are blessed to now call them our friends.

From the moment we met with Scotch Homes, they listened to all the different things we wanted to include into our new home. They discussed every step. The budgets we had for brick, lighting , flooring and even the landscaping were generous enough that I could stay in budget and not go over.

Besides being a great builder Scotch Homes is a great company that takes pride in their work. I recommend Scotch Homes to everyone I meet. If you have thought about building a home with Scotch Homes ,I promise, you will have a wonderful time!
