Comparing Schools

A good public school system can be an important consideration for home buyers, even if you don’t have school-aged children. That’s because good schools can enhance the resale value of your home and make it more attractive to a broader pool of buyers and tenants.

To conduct your own comparisons, go to School Match (link is external), which offers school research and data consulting services. Here you’ll find test scores, student-teacher ratios, spending and education levels for residents, and more.

School Match (link is external) provides verified school data, as opposed to self-reported data, which can lead to various misinterpretations. Data that has been independently verified allows you to make better school district comparisons before you move.
