TOWNE ACRES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL - EVALUATING SCHOOLS ON INTERNET

TOWNE ACRES ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN JOHNSON CITY TN  shows well in two sites that help people evaluate and compare schools.     Look at these examples to see the kind of information you can find on any school – where you are, or where you are thinking about moving.    

 

The NCES (National Council for Education Statistics) site and the Great Schools site both have much useful detail.    The information on Towne Acres Elementary School in Johnson City, TN is an example.

Parents, teachers and others can enter comments.   Here’s mine on Towne Acres Elementary:

 

As a real estate agent living in the Towne Acres Elementary area, I hear frequent comments about parent satisfaction with the school, and know there's a high degree of involvement.   I've observed over the years that people who do careful research on-line before they move to this area or who have Johnson City friends giving them advice usually start out by saying "We want Towne Acres school."

 

Don’t be confused by the search on this site for homes for sale – it’s Realtor.com, and is not specific to the school district.     The MLS link on my personal site allows  the search to be narrowed by school as well as by more criteria than offered on the Great Schools link.     

 

www.GreatSchools.org– search by zip or state-city – public and private.    Compare nearby schools.

For each school,  the following information is available:

·        Contact information, class size, location

·        Test scores and stats for each school – Towne Acres Elementary is well above state averages in every subject and grade category.  

·         Information about programs, extra-curricular activities, and a way to compare each school to others in the area.   

·        Evaluations by parents, teachers or “other” – the ratings for Towne Acres Elementary are all good, which has certainly been my experience talking with parents over the years.   

·        Articles grouped by topics such as  “parenting dilemmas,” subject matter, moving with kids, health and behavior, and learning difficulties.

·        There is some advertising, but the information available is worth going past that.
