Renee in NC Posted December 30, 2011 Share Posted December 30, 2011 My dc will be going to school next year. I am currently working on getting my CPA license and plan to go to work full-time next fall. We currently live in a very bad school district. There are some pockets of good, and I plan to apply for some of these (magnet schools, year-round schools, charter schools, etc.) My dc want to stay here (because they are tired of moving.) I am open to that possibility - it *would* be the easiest answer! I am looking in other areas, too. My approach has been to look at school districts within a 30 mile driving radius of various cities. I have looked on greatschools.org for rankings, but that isn't necessarily the whole picture, KWIM? (According to their ranking, our current zoned elementary school is a 1.:001_huh:) What other ways can I research school districts when I can't ask parents first hand? What really makes a school undesireable? The greatschool rankings are based on test scores, which can be misleading. Any insight would be appreciated!
