there are other properties in other zip codes which you can sent your children to "this" and better schools per statistics published by the county and other organizations available to all on the internet. (keep in mind what your needs are). I also do trustee and bank sales in addition to forclusures.
I would be happy to give you those zip codes with homes up to $550K free at no charge.

Seems you have been doing your homework which is commendable. As many of my colleagues have suggested you can verify the school boundaries for individual properties at http://www.fccps.org/admissions/addressverify.htm
If it's of interest to you..I am happy to set you up on an automated e-mail with properties suiting your needs and you will not have to spend a bunch of time looking up individual homes. I am very familiar with the housing stock in the area and would love to help you.

The school zip is mostly the 22046 area but has a few surrounding zip codes that fit within the City boundaries. I lived and worked int he City for 9+ years and know it well. Two of my children went through the City schools. When you come to the DC area I would be happy to show you around.
If you want to investigate the boundrary lines you can go to the City website.
The Fairfax County Public Schools Web site is exceptionally informative, and well worth exploring. It has a feature where one may input a street address in Fairfax County and get school information. Try searching our Web site, http://www.betterhomesva.com, and looking for available homes for sale that have a "FX" prefix. This Web site also has my contact information.
George Mason High School is the only high school serving the City of Falls Church, which is primarily located in the 22046 zip code, but there are some homes located in the 22042 and 22044 zip codes that are within the city limits.
My kids currently attend the Falls Church City Schools, including George Mason, and when I was making the decision of which house to choose, I called the Falls Church City school system, gave them my prospective address, and had them confirm that the house I liked was in fact located within the city limits. You really need to be careful, as the city's border's are irregular, and it is not always easy to tell if a house is in the city or one of the surrounding jurisdictions.
Let me know if you have any questions, I'd love to help you relocate to "The Little City"
As Colin shared with us, there is a home currently listed on 2003 Leonard Rd in Falls Church, VA 22043 that states its high school as George Mason High, but I believe that is an error. To verify whether an address is in the George Mason High School district, this site may help: http://www.fccps.org/admissions/addressverify.htm
So, Falls Church City is serviced by George Mason High School, and greater Falls Church is serviced by Falls Church High, Marshall High, and Stuart High. Hope this helps.

Looks like you are doing your homework in advance of your move. George Mason High School is largely made up of residents in the 22046 zip code, but you will also find homes in the 22043, 22042, 22044 zips, as shown in the current listings provided. (included only to demonstrate these facts).
Any agent you choose to help you will be able to search by school district if you instruct them to do so. Though you and your agent will certainly want to verify the accuracy of the listing information.
As a side note, my recommendation to folks relocating to the area is to rent first in order to give yourself more time to get acclimated and determine your neighborhood of choice. See my recent post linked to below.
George Mason High School, Falls Church City's high school, is for residences in the City's 22046 zip code and in the City's 22042 zip code.
The City's school website can offer additional assistance: http://www.fccps.org/

George Mason HS is in the 22043 zip code. There are actually 3 high schools in the immediate area. Aside from George Mason, you'll also be able to choose between McLean HS and George Marshall HS. Marshall is just a couple of minutes up the road. Depending on where you choose to live, these are all good schools.
Good luck, and let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.
