Where are the best schools for your kids? SchoolMatch has organized comparative information, in a national percentile format, to help families and home buyers select those school districts which most closely match their interests, lifestyles, and budgets. Users simply pick an area of the country before beginning to thin down the list of school districts based on four factors: Student's performance on college scholarship exams; per capita income; property value; and education level of adults. Anyone goin' to Kansas City? Eighty-two school districts in the metro area may seem overwhelming at first, but in two minutes you can focus in on the two that score in the top quintile for all four categories. You can also find out names of superintendents, number of students enrolled, and number of fulltime teachers.
