Phoenix School Locations
When I show homes in the Phoenix metro it’s always a challenge to know what Phoenix Schools are near or in an area where there is interest in a home. When a client asks me I don’t always know for several different reasons. First, I don’t have children so I have no direct experience with schools and second I sell homes in several cities like Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, Tempe, Mesa Chandler, Gilbert… you get the picture.
Find Phoenix School Locations Near My Home
My favorite tool for providing information on anything close to your home in Phoenix is “Walkscore”. It’s so easy to use this on line tool. All you have to do is go to “www.Walkscore.com”, Click on the cities and neighborhoods tab and enter in your address and click on the GO button, it’s so simple!
Search for Phoenix School Locations Using Walkscore
In the example below, I pulled up a random address in the Desert Ridge area of Phoenix so we can start looking for Phoenix Schools near that address.
You can see that the page results show what schools are near by looking at the little graduate cap icons on the map.
If you look to the left of the map you’ll see a “schools” category in BOLD letters. If you click the Schools heading a drop down list appears and shows not only what Phoenix schools there are near the address you entered, but the name of each Phoenix school, type of school and how far it is from the address.
Pretty Cool Huh? It gets better though!
If you click on one of the Phoenix schools in that drop down list you will be shown a highlight balloon that pops up on the map and tells you a little info on the Phoenix school you selected AND the name of the Phoenix school that is underlined is also a LIVE LINK to that Phoenix schools education performance report card!
I use this tool for other things too. It will tell you how far the nearest groceries stores are, the nearest parks, restaurants, banks, bookstores and a BUNCH more.
I would encourage you to get acquainted with it so that when you are trying to find Phoenix schools near your home in Phoenix or anywhere else in the valley you will know that immediately. You can use any city other than Phoenix to find Schools. You can find Fountain Hills Schools, Scottsdale Schools, Cave Creek Schools, Mesa Schools, Gilbert Schools, Chandler Schools, Tempe Schools, Glendale Schools, Peoria Schools, Surprise Schools and more.
