One question we often get asked is, “What’s the best school?” Our response is, “The one that is the best fit for your child.” There are large schools and smaller schools, urban, suburban and rural, some emphasize reading and some math. Some emphasize sports and some academics. Some of these factors are not easy to quantify. So we tend to look at proficiency test scores to evaluate a school system because that is easy to quantify. That is the information that we are providing below, but please understand that this is just one aspect of what goes into a child’s education. To truly get to know a district more research is necessary. Hopefully the links provided will help you find out about each district, but visiting a district in person and talking to other parents is really the best way to find the right school for your child.
