Here’s how to use GreatSchools’ search tool

It's now easier than ever for parents to search and compare schools at a school, district and city level in each state using our new search tool. School profiles now include important information in addition to test scores. Here's how to use the GreatSchools search tool.

Using our search tool, you can search for schools by district, by city, by zip code, by address or by the name of the school. You can filter the results by school type and level using our new map, list, and table views. You can also do side-by-side comparisons of schools based on a number of different factors. For example, you can see how schools compare in terms of academics, student progress over time, college readiness, and equity; and how well each school is meeting the needs of its different racial, ethnic and socio-economic student groups.
