Last Spring, when Andrea and Pete were moving to Fairfax County, they wanted the best possible school for their daughter, Haley.
But, like most of us, they had to stick to a budget so their challenge was to find the school boundary with the best schools, while still keeping to their budget.
When they started their search, they focused on school rankings
For school rankings, they looked at The Ultimate Fairfax County High Schools Ranking©* (which compiles rankings from The Challenge Index, average SAT Scores, as well as the Virginia SOL (Standards of Learning) Test Results).
This way, they had a list of Fairfax County Schools ranked by academics. But can they really afford to buy in any one of these boundaries?
