Homebuyers and their families face an overwhelming number of factors and statistics to consider when searching for top Minnesota school districts. Statistics include dropout rates, student/teacher ratios, number of graduates who go on to college. Other important factors in the decision making process are special needs programs, music, sports, and courses offered.
An easy way to gauge the academic quality of a Minnesota school district is to use the reported ACT scores as an index. Most educators and parents would agree that using the ACT scores to determine the “quality” would be oversimplistic; many other factors, i.e. number of students taking the ACT may skew the importance of this statistic. ACT scores should not be the only consideration. However, many parents use this statistic as a starting point.
