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!

Fox Valley Elementary School Teachers Rank Top in Illinois!

by The Rullo Team

Where your child will attend K-12 is an important factor in house hunting. Here in the FOX RIVER VALLEY we pride ourselves on our school districts. Our teachers are a major contributing factor to the strength of our schools. Niche K12, which provides local reviews of K-12 educational institutions, recently released their list of the top 100 elementary schools in Illinois with the best teachers, and we are happy to report that teachers in AURORA, GENEVA, SOUTH ELGIN, ST. CHARLES, and BATAVIA all made the grade!!

Niche K12 ranked Illinois elementary schools based on seven criteria….(1) Niche Academics grade, (2) Niche Teachers grade, (3) average teacher’s salary, (4) teacher absenteeism, (5) teacher salary index, (6) teachers in first or second year, and (7) student to teacher ratio. Each of these factors were weighted and a ranking was derived from the results.

Elementary schools throughout the Fox River Valley were in the top 100 schools in Illinois with the best teachers!! The cities of Aurora, Geneva, South Elgin, St. Charles, and Batavia are great places to raise a family, and our schools are foundational to our communities.
