As the previous Agents have stated, it is unethical for a real estate professional to guide you in or out of a school district or school. You can certainly do the research on the school district you are interested in to make an informed decision about the school you choose to purchase a home in. All of the previous sites mentioned are excellent places to start you checking.

Real estate agents are not allowed to comment on a variety of topics. The Fair Housing Act restricts the information that can be provided by a real estate agent.

Off Limit Topics Include:
• Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
• Demographics
• Environmental Concerns
• Household Income
• Religion
• Schools (including questions about how good or bad the school is)


Determining to the answers to questions on any of the topics listed above is something that you would need to do on your own. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. If a real estate agent were to comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.

Some websites to try include:

The question is subjective; therefore why not simply consider a visit to the school; ask for a tour of the facility, speak to superintendent, principal, teachers, etc.; then determine firsthand if your confort level can be reached....
