SchoolDigger.com Launches New School Ranking Tool to Help Parents Evaluate Schools
Parents now have a new tool for evaluating the quality of their child’s education. SchoolDigger.com has introduced a new ranking service that gives parents an intuitive way to compare a particular school’s performance to other schools in its district, city or state. This free service is a result of 3 years of feedback from site users and is the only one of its kind on the web.
SchoolDigger.com already ranks public schools based on average state-administered standardized reading and math test scores, but this unique tool also allows parents to create customized listings based on other criteria such as school grade, test and year. For example, a parent might want to see how well his child’s 5th-grade class performed state-wide in science, or how well New York high school students performed on the NY Regents French test, or how many of the top ten schools in Florida are magnet schools. The flexibility of this tool allows parents to identify and compare schools based on what is important to them.
Also new with this release is the ability to compare school rankings from year to year. With this data, a parent can see which schools in the area are most improved, and see how a particular school’s ranking has changed over the years. SchoolDigger.com’s new tool is exceptionally powerful, useful and intuitive, and gives parents extraordinary access to new information.
In addition to the rankings, SchoolDigger.com offers detailed profiles of over 120,000 public and private schools in the United States. The profiles include over twenty years of enrollment information, student body makeup, student/teacher ratios, and more. Another useful feature – particularly for those moving to a new area - gives parents the ability to search for and then compare schools near a specific address or within a zip code. Earlier this year, SchoolDigger.com also added user ratings, allowing parents, students and teachers to rate a school and provide comments. Several thousand comments have already been submitted, with more being added every day.
