Hi Frank,

GreatSchools.Net is a great source for MCAS ratings and parental ratings. (The Richardson North Junior High School has the highest rating, but also the largest student/teacher ratio.)

Frank, I have the TAKS Ratings for 2007 per city, if you'd like a copy I would be glad to scan and
email you a copy. If you would like to have a conversation regarding your Real Estate needs here
in the DFW Metroplex my partner and I would be glad to meet with you.

Hi Frank:
When moving to a new town with school aged children you have to make certain choices that aren't exactly in keeping with your personal priority list.

If Richardson is the town of employment - and your children's needs aren't met by the "local" school - you'll want choices. I have found this website INVALUABLE, because it gives directions and links to other townships in the general vicinity. It even gives you the number of miles away:


If you find your schools at http://www.greatschools.net and are unimpressed by the stats - check out the other cities via city-data.com, this will give you additional choices and converesely the move to Richardson could be a go - regardless of the schools.

Disclaimer: I know nothing about Richardson schools - and I hope you find the one suited for you and your family. I just want you to know that if you don't find what you are looking for and don't mind a commute, you have other choices as well!

Good Luck in your Endeavors!
