As a Realtor we can't comment on the quality of schools, however you can Google the information. Plus, for my Buyers I have them review the Buyers Advisory, in which contains a wealth of information like links on schools, rankings, crime rates and etc. If you are or start working with an Agent or Realtor, ask for this & you will be able to look up and find out all your own information.
By working with a local Realtor, they can help answer all your "lots of questions" and the things we are not allowed to comment on, like "best elementary school", they can and will provide you with the source(s) for you to find the information you seek.
Best of luck.
