Make an appointment at the schools and then go make an appointment at the school district and talk with them.
You can get a lot of useful information from the individual school district's websites
Also as Carl says, GreatSchools is a great site and offers an unbiased opinion.

What is important for your child? In what areas do they struggle, in what areas do they excel? What extra-curricular activities are they interested in? Which school meets your kid's needs the best?
The API scores are just one measurement. If your child is motivated to succeed, they will score highly on the tests regardless of the API score of the school. I have had clients choose each of those schools, and they are all very happy with their choices. Kids from all these schools have on to the finest private universities in the country.
Parents of kids attending these schools are the ones who rated the schools. They obviously love them, are active in the school, and believe in it. You need to find the one that is right for your child, and choose based on what is best for your situation.
