Which District Is Best for My Child?

Again, it depends. If you prefer smaller class sizes, you may want to choose a district that serves fewer students. If you prefer having more amenities, such as more extracurricular activities and programs, you may want to choose a school district that is larger.

You can also use national rankings to determine which schools offer the class sizes, technology, and additional programs that you want.
