Hi there,

These are all great websites, and you did ask about rankings, but if you live nearby already I strongly suggest that you spend some time talking with the principals at the different schools you be considering. I think the principal is a very good indicator of the style and approach of the school. All schools in Arlington County follow the same curriculum - the differences may be in how that curriculum is implemented.

Call anytime with questions,
Christine

Brose - rankings don't tell all. Sure, they should be considered, but I, too, would like to encourage you to visit the schools and ask questions that pertain to your child. See if there is a PTA facebook site for the school you're considering and ask questions of parents there. But, in the end, your child will have an individual experience at the school, and it will be heavily dependent on the specific teacher/s (not something you can control). Best of luck. As a mom of 4, I feel for you.

You can order school reports from http://www.eschoolprofiles.com with very detailed analysis of each school - more information on my web site.

My office is in Arlington and I found the best way to search for school information is go directly to the website. You can search and find the information you need. After you get that, give me a call and lets find your new home! http://www.arlingtonva.us/portals/serviceslist/listing.aspx?…
