Schools


If you are a parent, finding a neighborhood with a school where your child(ren) can thrive is a high priority. We have included several resources that will help you begin your research.


Great Schools provides school profiles in every state and includes most or all of the following information:

  • Phone number, address, district name, location map
  • Grade levels served, school type, enrollment
  • Detailed academic performance data, including state-mandated standardized test results
  • Student-teacher ratio, student ethnicity breakdown and other important statistics about teachers and students.
  • Clear explanations for all data presented
  • GreatSchools Ratings

All schools have the option of “upgrading”–at no cost–to an Official School Profile, which allows school principals and administrators to add information about curriculum, programs, activities, and photos. Public school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. School contact information and teacher/student statistics are obtained from both the state Department of Education and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The NCES is the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education.
