Spring is upon us, and families all across the country are once again gearing up to make a move at the end of the school year. For those relocating from out of state, it can be hard to determine which schools are the BEST Las Vegas schools for their kids from a such a distance.
Fortunately, the Clark County School District has put out a general ranking of schools based on the School Performance Framework. This should give any prospective homebuyer and concerned parent a start in the right direction for finding the top Las Vegas schools, and we have generated a list of the rankings below. (Be aware that a small percentage of the schools listed are actually in small towns outside of the Las Vegas Valley.)
Once you have identified possible schools for your child, you can then check out the homes for sale in the school zones that interest you using the handy links below.
