It’s back-to-school season again! One of the biggest considerations for families when buying a new home is school district. Naturally, parents want the best education possible for their children, and so competition for homes in these districts can be fierce.

If you’re thinking about moving your family to San Diego, or already live in the area and want to move your child into a top-ranking San Diego school district, here are the latest school rankings for the San Diego metro area:

Please note that these rankings are not based on my opinions or the opinions of Globella Buyers Realty. The list shown here is based on rankings from Niche.com rankings take into account 2013-2014 academics, health and safety, parents’ and students’ overall experience, teachers’ grade, resources and facilities, and extracurriculars. Particularly for the top 3-4 districts, it’s hard to say definitively which one is the best! Other websites, like greatschools.org, provide slightly different rankings, and Niche.com does not provide comprehensive rankings for some districts. It’s always best to read up on multiple scores when looking at school districts, so I encourage you to dive deeper, do your research, and reach out to me with any questions!

Of course, school district is just one of the many factors that go into finding the perfect neighborhood and home for your family.
