Q:

What school catchment area am I in?

A:

The first step in identifying the correct school catchment area is to go the website for the appropriate school district or county council. Some sites ask for an address to be typed in, and then the school is identified. In other cases, maps are used.

When maps are available, school names or grade levels are typically displayed on the site. Each is accompanied by a map, and the addresses found on it are within its catchment area.

While the online information strives for accuracy, changes and mistakes occur. If families are considering school catchment in their home buying or renting decisions, they should contact the appropriate school districts or city councils before finalizing their choices.
