Thanks, but I don't see how the school version of Angie's List is an objective way to rate what the educational professionals are doing with their students, in the classroom. That is what the PED is attempting to do with their system.<quoted text>
Comparisons made easy. All are invited to check out www.schooldigger.com here they have everything laid out. Best elementary school in San Juan county: Country Club (Farmington), best middle school: Mesa View (Farmington), best high school: Piedra Vista (Farmington) best overall district: Farmington. Improved test schools only mean you got better.
The ratings on schooldigger correlate more with the average household income, and parents level of educational achievement, than anything the school actually does. This information is helpful if one is moving to an area to get an idea of where the more desirable neighborhoods are in a larger metro area.
But someone using schooldigger could in theory, if relocating to SJC, avoid moving to Kirtland. A place with a low average household income, and post high school educational achievement. Looking further into this community one would then question the sanity of a community that elects a high school drop out hairdresser to the school board over and over.
So if you were relocating from Phoenix wouldn't you agree?
