How Do I Choose A School Or School District?
Category - Home Buying Questions - Search & Offer FAQ's

One of the greatest decision parents make when moving to a new home, is how the school and school district suits their children’s needs.  When beginning the selection process, you want to consider both your child's and your family's needs.


A good place to begin is to think about your child’s personality and/or special talents. A quiet child might do better in a smaller school or a school with small class size. If you have a budding musician or scientist, you'll want to look for a school that has programs in these areas. Is it important to you that your school be close to home or your place of work? Or will you need a school with before and after-school care?  Does your child have special disabilities or learning needs which must be supported by specially trained teachers? 


Typically, your first option is the neighborhood schools. Every public school district defines its own rules and boundaries for each school in the district.  When selecting a home, check with the local school district to find out which school your child will be assigned to, and what the rules are for attending charter schools, magnet schools, or other schools within or outside the local district.  Your real estate agent would be happy to help you conduct this research.
