The GreatSchools website provides community ratings for middle schools throughout the United States. It also displays community ratings for preschools, elementary schools and high schools. Many of the user ratings come from parents whose children attended the schools.
On the home page of the GreatSchools website, there is a search box where users can enter an address, city or ZIP code to find and review middle schools in their area. Users can filter their search by distance, grades, minimum average rating and by whether the institutions are public or private. Some schools have information regarding AP classes and the different kinds of clubs students can join.
