Jenny, most school districts have their areas mapped out to a "T". For instance in the Farmington/Canandaigua area, children across the street go to Victor while Children on the other side go to Canandaigua. Unless you are sending your kids to a private school or charter school, it is usually already determined which district serves your home.
It might best serve you to check out the schools in the area, I have that information available on my website www.Brad-Newton.com. Then decide from there where you will begin your home search. Both schools listed have been in the news regarding their education programs.
If you would like further help determining a good fit for you and your family don't hesitate to call me at 585-236-7780 or email me at BradNewton@Remax.net. I can also give you more information on websites to use to research schools.
I hope that has helped and let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you as a Certified Buyer Representative in your area.
