by The Rullo Team

When it comes to what schools within these districts are the best of the best, you will need to do a little schoolwork on your own! There are several factors to consider when determining the quality of schools. Look beyond test scores. Although this information is helpful, it does not always provide the best indicator of a school's quality. Explore websites such as GreatSchools.org, Niche.com, and U.S. News & World Report for great unbiased data and rankings of local schools. Check out each school's individual website to learn about awards or recognitions received. Do not be afraid to reach out to the schools to ask further questions and request a site visit. Seeing the school in person and meeting with the staff can help you determine whether the school would be the right fit for your child.

 

 

Once you find the perfect school for your children, work with an experienced realtor to find your dream home within the school's boundaries. Give The Rullo Team a call today or visit our website at http://www.therulloteam.com/ to get started today!
