Dear Myion and Ebony,

There are several wonderful areas that you can consider when you move your family to the Valley. I do recommend to do an extensive research when it comes to school districts and the area that you want to live in as well. Some great school district areas may have older areas and you may be looking for a newer home and vice versa.

Go to the department of education list of top school districts here :

http://www.azed.gov/blog/2011/05/12/top-school-district-ranking/

I have lived in both Chandler and Gilbert area, and I concur with Chad ...both have great and top rating schools and districts.

Make sure you find a realtor that knows the area well once you decide on the area, and go from there

Gilbert has excellent schools. 3 of my Children attended Highland High School in Gilbert, AZ and my wife and I were very happy with our children's education. Our youngest son currently attends Williams Field High School which is in the Higley School district. Higley is a small town next to Gilbert, our son loves the school. Let me know if I can set you up with a custom home search..You will love Arizona. Also click on this link to a website which ranks the various schools in Gilbert. I found it very helpful http://www.greatschools.org/arizona/gilbert/

Gilbert is a great area and has some fantastic neighborhoods. Chandler has great schools as well. We moved here from Illinois about 25 years ago and have loved it ever since! I hope your move goes well and if you decide to buy a home (we don't work with rentals other than if our investors have a vacancy), please remember to give us a call. We would love to help!

Best Regards,

Brenda

Hi Myion & Ebony,

I don't do rentals, but I can refer you to someone that does.As all the respondents of this Post, I know that Gilbert has the best schools in the valley other than the Kyrene School district in Chandler. Most other school districts in Chandler don't rate very high on student performance. Here are links to some resources to help you research and make an informed decision.

Gilbert has very good schools overall and so does Chandler. Take a look at http://www.greatschools.net for some great school ratings. When you are ready to relocate, contact a local Realtor in the area for a tour of some neighborhoods and homes that fit the school of your choice.
