EQUITABLE SCHOOL SEARCHES.

#
  • Select Your Metro Area


WE’RE NOT JUST TEST SCORES.

No child is just a score. No teacher is just one test. And no school is just one number. We take test scores and layer on additional factors, like parent income and school demographics, to control for the bias inherent in simply sharing test scores.

#
Balanced Data

We control for factors beyond the control of schools and students, like parent income.

#
Diversity Factors

A diverse community is key to a child’s development. We have a system that supports those environments.

#
Real Quality

Great schools aren’t just found in high-income zip codes. We help you find real quality schools in any zip code.

DATA DRIVES GOOD DECISIONS.

We’re on a mission to empower families with a more equitable school rating system which, instead of favoring schools where parents have high incomes, elevates out-performing schools where parents have diverse or low incomes. Our rating system uses data science to normalize for parent income, and you can read more here

We rank public K-12 Schools by controlling for parent income, the single most influential factor in predicting standardized test performance.

EDUCATORS LOVE OUR SYSTEM.

OUR APPROACH

“I was absolutely overjoyed to hear that LSES made the Top 30 in the metro Atlanta area. For the past 13 years, the school, its students, staff, and community have been my heart and my reason for getting up every day. While many leaders at high poverty schools complain about the lack of parental support, I had parents who made their children’s education a top priority.

Over 30% of the student body speak a language other than English at home and I always told them that they were smarter than the average kids because not only were they learning to read, write, and compute but they were also learning English at the same time. The kids are amazing!! I also attribute much of the growth that the students made over the years to the fact that we are a family. While we might look different and might not be related, we are family. We celebrated our differences along with the various cultures and languages represented among the students and staff. Our diversity makes us stronger!”

-Mr. Marchant, Principal, Douglas County School System

WE HELP REALTORS GUIDE FAMILIES BETTER.

Our data is truly different, and makes it easier for realtors to avoid common issues like steering as they help families find new homes. Founded by a real estate broker who experienced issues with the way families were being guided through the process of home-buying firsthand at other firms, our technology was developed to ensure transparency and fairness in both real estate and education.

Our school search data is completely free to all families and agents, but we do offer additional agent tools and training to help address systemic issues common in the process of purchasing a home.
