Philadelphia School Report

Philadelphia School Report

Ten years ago The Philadelphia Inquirer published a report on the area schools for the first time. This past weekend they just published this years report with a photographic review of the prior ten years.

As time has passed the report has become more detailed and of course covers charter schools now which did not even exist ten years ago. Plus with today's access to the internet you can now access the report on line and tailor it to make your own report a wonderful tool for buyers and sellers alike.

If you are selling your own home wouldn't a school report be handy? If you are buying would it not be useful to be able to compare school districts, all this and more is now possible.

The report covers private and public schools in detail, charter schools and technical school with website links, number of students, and fees where appropriate. It compares different grades and covers New Jersey as well as Pennsylvania schools.

There is a lot of depth here for you to analyze the results, and as they say with numbers you can tell any story, but information is useful. As well as in depth results there are handy "at a Glance" tables where you can get an overall impression.

So go and check it out and see how your school district measures up or even possibly your proposed school district with a view of the report.

You can also get a listing of general school information for counties we sell homes in with links to the school district websites on the schools page on our website.
