Researching your school options
Which school or school district to choose for your child is one of the biggest decisions you will make as a parent. Below are listed some resources to assist you in your decision-making.
There are a number of websites to which you can refer for information.
The State Report Card http://reportcard.ospi.k12.wa.us/ at the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction provides current and historical test scores by school and district. It also provides other detailed information by school. To drill down for the data, use the search box on the top right-hand site of the OSPI site.
www.greatschools.org provides listings nationwide on school performance,
including parent ratings and reviews.
