DISCLAIMER: Please note, not all school boundaries are included.

To verify legal descriptions of boundaries or to determine school locations or attendance, please contact the school district directly.
School name, address, type and test scores are from the National Center for Education Statistics and the school’s corresponding state Department of Education.

An attendance boundary indicates an area of households that attend the area’s designated school.
All K-12 public schools, including charter schools, for which we currently have school boundary information are included. We will be adding more schools as the data becomes available.
Private schools are not included because private schools do not have school boundaries.
