I want my kids to have a good education, from start to finish.
I went through the trouble of going through the school districts test scores for each elementary school one by one. Out of well over 25 schools only 7 did I find to have acceptable enough scores for my children.
I want them in a school that they will be driven and one which will nourish their growth in a positive way.
I now plan to go to the schools, do a tour by myself and then do a tour with my daughter to allow her the chance to express what she does and does not like as well.
She is only starting the first grade next school year.
Is this overly anal as a parent?

Well, you have to do what is comfortable for you, as a teacher I can say test scores aren't always an accurate way to judge a student or the school. Many standardized test score doesn't really show what a student really knows. Some of my best students do very poor on the tests. Find a school where the atmosphere feels right and the teaching philosophy matches yours. Good luck!!
