Hi inesoa,

In the US, schools are typically zoned for neighborhoods. You move into an area, and that area will be zoned for a certain school.

If you are moving for a job, I'd suggest asking to speak to the Human Resources person at the company and see if they can pair you with a few families with kids of a similar age. Find out about commute times, schools and other amenities.

In addition, find a real estate professional who is very comfortable with the area, and ask for advice. You don't have to be buying a home--you can be renting and real estate folks will be happy to help you find a great area for your family.

Here's a great article to help you get started: http://www.greatschools.org/find-a-school/moving/3986-choosing-a-school-from-a-distance.gs

Good luck and let us know how it goes.
