The only way to send your kids to a top ranking school for free is to move to the neighbourhoods that have the best schools. Choosing a home based on the affiliated school has always been more of an American phenomenon. I haven’t really seen a lot of parents choosing a home based solely on the fact that the feeder schools are the ones they want their kids in. I mean it happens, but not often…until recently. There seems to be a bit of shift in trend and I’m seeing more parents have schools at the top of their priority list, which has forced me to become part REALTOR, and part school researcher.
My two main tools: the Fraser Institute website, and the Calgary MLS. And who should benefit from my many hours of study but my loyal Vanderveen Team readers. So, once again I am beginning a series on which communities to move to, if you care mainly about schooling. Everyone knows that if you want a good education, money talks. I will review and present private schools, but my goal with this blog is to look mainly into public and Catholic schools, which are free to the residents they serve.
Keep your eyes open in the weeks to come as I reveal the fruits of my research. If you’re that mom who has a child that will be entering school in the next couple of years this may be the blog for you.
