School District Consideration when Home Searching

Finding A Neighborhood With Great Schools

Finding a home within a good school district is not something you will want to overlook….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you have children, or even if you don’t yet but plan to in the future, schools are something you will need to take into consideration when searching for homes for sale in Pawleys Island.  In most areas, certain boundaries define which schools your children will go to, and switching to a different school can be complicated and expensive in many cases.

 

Fortunately, finding a great neighborhood with good quality schools is not difficult, thanks to the internet and your friends at Pawleys Island Real Estate.  Online ratings and reviews of schools can help you to make the right call when it comes to finding a home that will offer your children a quality education.

 

Start With The District

 

The first thing you should look into is which school district you are considering moving into.  Find out if the schools in that district tend to be highly rated, and what kind of test scores are generally seen among students in the district schools.  All of this information is readily available online,such as www.neighborhoodscout.com/sc/schools/  or www.zillow.com/sc/schools/.

The school district Web site will be able to tell you which school your children would go to if you were to buy a particular house.  There is usually a boundary map you can check, or you can enter your address and search to find out which school is the right one. Since Pawleys Island is part of Georgetown County, you can look for information by following this link…….www.gcsd.k12.sc.us/.

 

Check The Reviews

The internet allows people to review everything from appliances to doctors— and schools are no exception.  Search for your school of choice online and you will find plenty of reviews from parents whose children have attended the school.  Getting an unbiased opinion of the school will help you to get an idea of what you can expect.

When You Love The Neighborhood, But Not The School

 

If you really want a particular house in a particular neighborhood, but aren’t too happy with the schools, you can look into your other options.  Most school districts have a system by which you can choose to send your child to a different school.  This usually involves either particular needs that can’t be met by the in-area school, or a fee or lottery system to allow your child to attend the school of your choice.  Find out what the rules are in your school district.

Your other option is to look into private schools.  This is, of course, the more expensive choice, but should you select a private school you will have the freedom to live wherever you like, without worrying about what school your child will be slotted to attend.
