Schools Data

We partner with GreatSchools.org to give you ratings and parent reviews of local schools in the areas where you're searching for homes.

Search for Schools

You can search for an individual school in the search box, or just click on a school icon on the map to see more information about the school. 

Schools information will appear on the right sidepane when you click on a school icon on the map. You'll see the GreatSchools rating and parent rating, along with other details about the school.

 

School Details Pages

Clicking the School’s name will take you to a full details page where you can see test scores and contact information. We also show all the GreatSchools ratings and parent reviews of the school.

Nearby Homes and Recent Sales

You’ll be able to search for homes for sale, or that are recently sold, by hitting the ‘Homes for Sale in Attendance Zone’ link on the school’s detail page. You can also search within the search text box for that school and you’ll be able to find the homes on the market for that school.

Schools on Listings

Each home listing includes a chart that shows up to five schools that may include the home in its service area. Up to five of the nearest elementary, middle, and high schools are also shown. Ratings from GreatSchools and parent reviews are also included, if available.

To see which homes are located in a school's service area, click the Map It icon in the Homes column of the chart. 

Keep in mind that the service areas shown should only be used as a reference and a home's proximity to a school is not a guarantee of enrollment. To verify enrollment eligibility for a property, please ask your agent or contact the school directly.

Redfin receives the school information from GreatSchool.org, if you notice that any information is incorrect please let us know! We want to make sure we have the best information around, so we want to know if it needs to be updated!

    There are many changes on redfin that make this site less useful. school rating is one of them. Among local schools in 10 miles range, the ratings used to be between 3 to 10, most in 6 to 8. Now everyone gets inflated, there are no more 3 or 4, most are shifted to 9 to 10. No longer a useful measure in choosing a good neighborhood.

    School rating is out of data... For example if you look at Melrose, MA schools, the rating in Redfin is different from GreatSchool.org site.

    Hi Amlan,

    Thanks for writing in! Keep in mind that Redfin can take up to a few months to update with Great Schools ratings. However, if you believe that the ratings have been out of date for longer, feel free to send an email to us via techsupport@redfin.com and we can look into the issue.

    Thanks,

    Hi Yin,

    That's a great question! Unfortunately, we are experiencing a bug with the school icons not appearing on the search map. Our engineers are tending to the issue and working on a fix but there is no ETA at this time. If you have any other concerns feel free to contact us via techsupport@redfin.com.

    Thanks!

    I have raised this issue that your data is horribly out of date for many area in bay area for greatschools but it was never fixed. All i got was empty assurances and one wrong date after another. Why don't you work towards fixing the problem and getting the right data ? Your website is really not useful if you refer to greatschools but give wrong data.

    Hi Hironmay,

    Thank for your sharing your feedback with us.  Just to confirm, Great Schools is our data source for school information, are not finding their website's information useful? I want to make our engineers aware of this, so please let me know!

    Best,

    The school ratings are often inaccurate. For example, there's a property with schools rated 8,9,10 (for elem, middle, and high school respectively). I f I check greatschools.com directly, the scores are actually 6,7,8. This is very misleading..
