Getting Schooled On Local Schools

 

If you have kids, the local school will be a big part of your new home buying decision.article 3 image

That’s why it’s important to get a school’s “vital statistics”, such as:

  • Safety record
  • Curriculum
  • Accommodation for special needs
  • Awards
  • Average class sizes
  • Extracurricular activities. (sports, arts, crafts, technology, etc.)
  • Scores on standardized achievement tests
  • Daily schedules and vacations

Even such seemingly inconsequential details as hours of operation can be important. If school starts a half hour later than you expected, you may not be able to drop off your kids on your way to work and therefore, you will need to make other arrangements
