School Quality

Find your child’s long-term earnings potential and success

Where you live matters. It matters not only for yourselves but also for your children. Where you live can impact how successful your children will be in life, and their future earning potential. A good neighborhood sets the foundation for their future.

We have identified the following resources for families to use in order to better understand their child’s future earnings and opportunity:

1. Presentation on School & Neighborhood Quality
Presented by AKEB West, this recorded webinar should be your first place to start.  It contains a detailed walkthrough of the research and resources needed to move forward.

2. OpportunityAtlas.org
Understand your child’s economic earnings potential based on your neighborhood.  Simply type in your address and explore!

3. Niche.com and Greatschools.org
Determine your child’s school rating. Schools that are classified as an 8/10 or higher on GreatSchools and A- or higher on Niche are usually the schools you want your children to be attending.

4. Video Walkthrough on how to use these websites
Use the bit.ly links in the image below for a walkthrough video on how to use these websites!



5. Search examples on Google Maps. AKEB West has added some of the A and B schools in the areas surrounding our local jamatkhanas. While this list is not comprehensive due to the large number of schools in the system, it may help give some initial ideas to families.
