Hi Jennifer

Interview the school professionals, coaches, etc.
Drive around and meet people.
Ask those who live there.
Park in a neighborhood and see who notices you sitting there in your car.
Walk and talk.

Of course choosing a local real estate pro can help you save a lot of time.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro when you are ready.)

Hi Jennifer, the Thomson school is a favorite among the locals here in town because of the overall welcoming feeling you get there. The staff has always treated me very well when I have needed to visit and friends of my sons who have gone there have always spoke very highly of the school.

I have a client that just moved from that side of town who had two young ones in the school who may be willing to answer specific questions for you. The Thomson has a smaller school sort of feel that many like. The parents that I speak to who have children in the school are very clear that they love it. Feel free to email me at lisasjohnson@comcast.net if you would like me to put the two of you in touch.
