Arlington’s a large county with a lot of schools, so it’s hard to always know where the boundaries fall for each school. Arlington County Public Schools has a great online tool called the Boundary Locator to help with finding the elementary, middle and high school associated with an address. It’ll help in your home search if this is a concern because many property listings don’t include the schools. If the schools are listed, it’s always a good idea to double check them anyway.
Once you have a house you’re interested in, go to the county website to the Boundary Locator and do a search by “Find Address.” Once you find the house, click the “i” into the white box that represents the house – it’ll pop up with a new window that gives each school and their website.
Here’s a full list of the Arlington County Public Schools:
- Arlington Science Focus
