There seems to be a new proliferation of sights that want to tell you about school "ratings." While it's always good to have information of what other parents think of a school that serves an area in which you're considering buying a home you should keep in mind that, as Paul Harvey used to say, "there's a rest of the story"!
It's in your and your child's best interests to dig deeper than just these type of websites. Call or better yet, visit the school, talk with the principal, ask for a tour and perhaps a chance to speak with some of the teachers your child or children might have. Ask about any special programs available for your child's interests. Sports, drama, music, academics? Ask about busing and the availability of year-round and traditional programs.
Spend the time doing your due diligence on school placement beyond just checking "ratings"-you'll be sure of a good fit and a happy child (well, as happy as a kid can be going back to school!)

"Michele's services are top notch. She walked us through the entire process of selling our house, leaving no stone unturned. She gave great advice on how to prepare the house, from an aesthetic standpoint, appropriate price range, and gave frequent updates as things progressed. She went above and beyond our expectations throughout the process. Our house was under contract within two days and I was completely impressed at how well things went."
