Researching Schools - Where to Start


An important part of choosing a new home is making sure that the local schools will be a good fit for your child. Even if you don't have children, school districts can impact the demand for your house at resale, so having knowledge about the local schools is an important part of your home buying process.

Wondering where to start your research? Local municipal websites will tell you which schools in the district serve the address in question. Once you know the schools that your potential home feeds to, there are a few websites that focus on grading schools in categories ranging from test scores to student-teacher ratios. Some note student body diversity and more.  

Check out the websites below for information on local schools in your desired neighborhood. *Bonus - this website allows you to compare multiple schools.
