You could contact the school's PTA or PTO president to get a parents view of that particular school. You can also check out the school reports on my website. Otherwise knowing several families with children attending a school can also be a valuable source of information.
Along with being a REALTOR I have been a substitute teacher in Woodbridge Township for many years and I can tell you that alot of your child's education is up to the family. The family plays a huge role in how any child views the importance of their education.
