Selecting a great school for your child

School choice is important because every child is different. A one-size-fits-all approach to education always leaves someone behind; one child's ideal learning environment may be totally different from that of another child. However, we also know that school choice can feel overwhelming, so we're here to help.

Education is a deeply personal choice because of the impact it has on your family for generations to come. Our goal is to empower you to make the best decision by providing you with information, tools, and transparency to make a choice that's right for you and your child.

Factors to consider when choosing a school:

Letter Grade

Academics

School Culture

ELL / ESL Programs

Technology

Facilities

Rules / Discipline Structure

Distance from home or work

Student Support Services (SPED, 504 Accommodations, Intervention, etc)
