First of all, you may want to go on the the different county school website, which are full of good information about schools ranking and testing results. Then decide which county may meet your expectations for your child and location to your job. You then can narrow your search by zip codes.

Hi Jenifer!

Each school is different, and may have something that will work better for your son. That being said, you also never know when your home will be redistricted.

I live in Towson, and my house was redistricted a few years ago.

There is a new school being built in Timonium, and some of the Towson area homes may be redistricted, depending on what the final decision may be. (That may not be for a few more months.)

Please feel free to contact me privately, and I can assist you further. If you click on my photo, my personal information can be found.

Towson is my speciality, as I live here, work here, and my office is called "Team Towson!"

Hi Jenifer,
Check out http://www.greatschools.org to get school reviews. Once you narrow it down, visit the schools, talk to the teachers and the parents who currently send their kids there. At the same time start your pre-approval process (I can put you in touch with a list of lenders if you need that) then you know what budget you are working with and can begin your homesearch in your chosen school district. Hope I can help you with your purchase. I am happy to guide you through the whole process. Email me or call me and we can chat more about everything. Suzanne Razaq MBA.
