Q: I’m relocating to Seattle. How do I find out which schools are the best?

No one can tell you what is best for your child. Any information you receive from another parent about a particular school will be from their very personal point of view. And it will reflect their child’s experience, which may not be the same for yours.

Ultimately, it’s your family and your decision. If you’re undecided about which school your child should attend, your best bet is to do some simple research and vet the school districts you’re considering. Here are some great ways to get started:

  • Visit greatschools.org and check out resources and reviews about schools in your community. Plus, you’ll get great tips on how to make a smooth transition when moving with kids.
  • Set up a consultation with a school district administrator and tour the school.
  • Talk to several parents in the school district to get a general consensus about the school system.
  • Look at reading and math scores, then compare them to national averages to see how the school ranks.
