Finding the right school for your children is important business. So important that living in the right region can make all the difference. An app like GreatSchools Finder sets out to make this all a bit easier.

It’s an app for families in the US to find out quickly just how good their local school is and how it compares with other nearby schools. It offers over 125,000 K-12 public, private and public charter schools in the country using a 1-10 rating for each. Test scores are provided as well as over 900,000 parent and community reviews too.

Map features are on offer so it’s easy to see exactly where each school is located and numerous filtering options ensure that a parent can quickly view what’s relevant to them such as filter out certain grade levels or distance requirements. Once the right school is found, it can then be saved to a list of favorites for easy consultation and can be shared with others too.

GreatSchools Finder looks set to be an ideal way of taking out some of the hassle of finding the right school, and it’s available now as a free app.
