I've been playing around with Google Maps lately. Here's something that I wish I had when I was looking for a house in Austin:
Map of Austin Area Elementary Schools with Ratings
(View Austin Area Elementary Schools in a larger map, plus a list of all area schools by name.)
Markers are color coded per each school's rating (which is based on how the school body performed on the TAKS test for 2007-2008 school year)
Red = Exemplary
Green = Recognized
Blue = Academically Acceptable
Yellow = Academically Unacceptable
I've included schools in Round Rock, Pflugerville, Cedar Park, Leander, Lake Travis, and Westlake. I'll update it soon with schools around Buda and Dripping Springs.
Don't forget to check out the rest of my website, where you can find thinks like links to figure out what school a property will track to, plus more tools you can use to evaluate a school. (I for one think that there's more to a school than how the students did on the TAKS test, but I know it's good for a quick evaluation).
Also to come, maps of area middle & high schools, once my eyes get uncrossed. Enjoy!
