Getting to Know the Education Options in San Antonio
Rating and Tests
Most parents understand that test scores don’t always tell a full story about the quality of education found in a school yet that is how schools are rated so it is important to understand how the Texas system works.
Schools are rated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable and Academically Unacceptable. For the majority of schools in the suburbs and neighborhoods outside of the downtown San Antonio area, they are rated as Recognized and Exemplary. For a newly established school, they may be considered Recognized until they have more history to report.
The top school districts in the San Antonio area are: Boerne, Randolph Field, Comal, Alamo Heights, Northside Independent and North East. This is based on test scores and overall performance. It can be helpful to visit a school to determine if your child would excel in that type of environment before buying a house in the area. Moving to an area with a top-rated school will not only help your child and their future but can also help boost property values in the long run as well.
Finding a home within your desired neighborhood is like winning the jackpot for your family. Your children can thrive in a strong school and you can know you’re helping to ensure a good future for them.
