Just need some clarity on this please!

Help the community by answering this question:



When you asked this question the other day, I answered it. I can see that you're confused, but you're posting this in a forum where the agents who are answering don't know what listing you're speaking, none of us can help you without the address.

The boundaries can be confusing. For example, you can be about a mile west of Naperville Central HS (D203) and be in a different school district (D204). Just because it's the closest school doesn't mean it's the school your child will attend. Trulia puts the "closest school" in it's listings, even if your child can't attend that school. It's helpful when there is a private school nearby, which would provide parents with a choice. But, where public school boundaries are concerned, there are no choices.

There are 5 high schools which serve Naperville, 3 in D204 and 2 in D203.

If you aren't sure of the information on a consumer website like Trulia, I would urge you to contact an agent. We don't bite. :) We get these questions every day. It will save you the time, not to mention the uncertainty. An MLS search will provide the most up-to-date information, which is particularly important in rentals...the good ones go very fast.

Naperville school District is listed on Illinois State school report card site as District #203. Here is link to page District is listed at 109 one of the highest in state our schools districts for Edwardsville Illinois and Highland Illinois are both 105. Illinois state average is 102. Nice schools. We at serving Edwardsville Illinois, and Highland Illinois, think school districts are an important part of home buyers decision. We have added a link for local school district report cards.

Central may be the nearest school to this home, but the kids still are bussed to district 204. Call the school district if you want to make sure.

Maybe you should have just asked your agent the question and maybe you wouldn't be so confused.

Good luck with your move.

Thank you all for your help! I live in Ohio and the schools districts here are a not quite as large so they are broken up very specifically. We are already working with an agent, but doing some independant searches as well. I really appreciate your time!!

You can't search for properties based on proximity to the school, in Naperville there are 4 high schools that students can to. You will have to search based on the school boundaries to make sure that Naperville Central will be the school. You could contact me and I will be happy to assist you.
