Plano is named for being one of the best cities to live in. Not only is the cost of living reasonable, but the schools are rated some of the best in the state. Starting school is a huge milestone for kids. You want to find the right school to serve your child’s needs. Here are some ideas on how to find the best school in Plano for your kids.
If you are just starting your search or new in town it’s important to give yourself some time do some research. Think about your children and what might be best for them individually. If you are just moving into the city then take some time to learn about the schools zoned in the neighborhoods you are most interested in.
Plano has 72 schools across the town that include early childhood, elementary, middle, high school, and senior high schools. So where to begin? A good place to start your search is by looking at the district’s website. Here you can find out more information about all the schools. You can also do the school finder to help you find the schools that you are zoned for according to your address.
One of the most important things though is to consider the needs of your child. When my daughter was about to start her elementary years in Plano, I wanted small class size. Maybe you have a special needs child or a high achieving student. Every school in Plano has their own page that will give stats and list additional resources and classes offered at that particular campus.
If you are looking to get more into school rankings then consider School Digger, Great Schools, and Neighborhood Scout. Though it’s good to get a variety of input from the community, these sites may not be able to tell you everything that you are looking for. They might not give you real Mom advice, so it’s a good idea to join in on the school talk on Plano Moms Talk!
