There are several services, such as the search function on the GreatSchools.org district boundary map or SchoolDistrictFinder.com, that can help users determine the school district applicable to a particular address. By entering an address into the search bar, users can see the address on a map, along with nearby schools and district information. Users can sort the map to show specific schools as well, and users can also search nearby elementary, middle and high schools.
Additionally, some states, cities and municipalities provide school district information on their taxation or revenue department websites. This can be useful for determining available schools and tax rates associated with a particular address or district. Users can also sometimes find specific school assignments based on their addresses through these sites to determine which elementary, middle or high schools their children will attend within the district.
In addition to these websites, there are also apps available to locate school districts. SchoolDistrictFinder.com has an app available for iOS that allows users to search school districts from their phones or tablets. While the website is free to use, the app costs $1.99, as of 2015. These websites and apps can be particularly useful for home buyers in assessing an area's educational opportunities before purchasing a home.
