Resources to help you find the right school system for you in Pennsylvania.
Realtors are not allowed to advise or recommend which school district is the best school district in the area and we do get asked this question OFTEN. As our answer always is, "You need to do research and make your own determination as to which school is the right school system for you when moving to Pennsylvania" this is the only correct answer in my opinion. Everyone has their own guidelines/determinants as to what constitutes "a good school." Therefore, everyone should always do their own research and make their own decision.
That being said I wanted to do some research to see what avenues are available out there in the world of the Internet to help with the decision of finding the right school sytem for you in PA. Details of what I found are listed below. I'm sure this list could go on and on and is constantly changing but hopefully for those moving to the Poconos these will help you to get started.
Let's start with the PA DEPT OF EDUCATION. There are several avenues of information that they offer on their site to help guide you on your way to making a decison on the right school system for you in Pennsylvania such as:
Also on their site:

All of these sites offered great articles and some insightful information:

Needless to say there are a ton of powerful and informative sites available to you to guide you in your decision as to which school system is right for you and your family. This blog post could go on and on but I hope it has given you enough avenues to get started. Good Luck!
