To find and compare schools in your area, set up a Noodle search with your zip code and select any appropriate criteria – middle school, public school, etc. You can then compare each school's Noodle report card, which provides information about a school's education quality, overall climate, and student outcomes.
I'd also recommend that you research what options are available through your local school district. The Los Angeles Unified School District's School Guide is a great resource for information about local public and charter schools. You can also find detailed information about a school's performance through the LAUSD School Report Card program.
Some other helpful resources are below:
- Los Angeles Times California School Guide
- Los Angeles Magazine School Guide
- U.S. News and World Report's Best High Schools in California List
Make sure to also consult Noodle's articles and advice on finding a school.
