Hi Michelle -
As others have mentioned, there are sites that will post rankings. I also would suggest that you ask people who may have children attending those schools or speak directly to school officials. Rankings don't tell you everything. You also have to decide what is important to you and your children. Some schools may have great rankings, but they don't have the music education or science focus or sports programs that you may be looking for. One size doesn't fit all when it comes to schools. People may think that it is only money per pupil or teacher/student ratio, but there is more to it than that. Good luck with your search.

Peggy nailed it!! You can even go as far as to interview the principals in the district you are interested in!

Good Luck,
