Hi there,

It is a challenge comparing schools across states, as every state has their own unique standardized tests used to measure academic performace under No Child Left Behind.  Therefore, you can't make a direct comparison across states with regards to test scores.

That being said, I would suggest taking a look at both schools you are considering within our SchoolFinder tool to get a sense of the schools' academic performance, parent reviews, and student and teacher statistics.  That way you'll know more about all schools you are considering.

Hope this helps!
