Hi Zoelayla,

Welcome to the U.S. school system! You can research schools in your new neighborhood by using SchoolFinder: http://www.education.com/schoolfinder/

To get the best results, I recommend you enter your new zip code into the search field. Contact the school district to find out which elementary school is zoned for your residence, as well as for their enrollment policies and procedures, particularly with regard to students transferring into the district after being educated abroad. Private schools are also included in SchoolFinder.

You could also do a Google search using your zip code and the keyword "private schools" to get a yellow pages type listing (call each private school for its enrollment policies, procedures and prices).

I'm including links below to support you in this transition for your family. I hope all goes well with the adjustment and that your daughter has a wonderful school year.
