Tom provided some good sites. I would only add US News' school rankings. Should give you a good idea of where the schools rank in the towns you're looking in. Good luck!

Don't just rely on ratings, consider a visit to the school(s) of interest...https://reportcards.nysed.gov/

Look on line for the New York State Department of Education and school district accountability. There is a wide range of information including: programs, special programs, staffing, standard test scores, ratings, etc. This range of information is available for every district and is broken down into levels, primary, intermediate, middle school, high school, special education, etc.

Good luck,

Bill

Hi Lillian! There are many great websites out there that can help you assess local school districts. I suggest checking out http://www.schooldigger.com. Whenever you find that next home, you can always request a tour of the local school, and ask to sit in on a classroom in session.

I hope this answered your question! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.

I wrote a post on this issue not too long ago. At the bottom of the post is a number of ranks that can give you information about various school districts. Please contact me if you have any questions.
