Because of the legislation of the Fair Housing Act a real estate agent cannot legally share school information because it can be perceived as steering buyers to a certain neighborhood.

The government want to make sure that home purchase decisions are based on the property’s fair value and to stop agents from steering clients toward or away from certain neighborhoods. The Fair Housing Act  prohibits real estate agents from discussing household income, schools, religious makeup of a neighborhood along with race, color, religion, ethnicity, disabilities and familial status.

There are many good websites to help you find out school rankings, size of class, enrollment, student to teacher ratios, test scoring and more. Here are three websites that I have found out to be very informative:-

1. The National Center for Education is a government run site mandated by Congress to collect, collate, analyze and report statistics on the American education system.

2. School Digger provides an exclusive ranking system of statewide public schools from best to worst. This site is simple and easy to use.

3.  Education.com provides ratings on the schools and also has a ‘Just Ask Q&A’ section is very helpful.
