As parents who rent are making their last scramble to get moved and settled before school starts, Apartment Guide announces its series of online articles highlighting affordable apartments for rent near top-rated public schools across the United States. The series consists of dozens of city-specific articles researched and written specifically to help American renters who have school-age children at home. The goal is to offer a helpful time-saver for parents looking to provide the best possible education for their children at the lowest possible price.
To create each article in the series, the editorial team at Apartment Guide researched school ratings, neighborhoods near top-ranked schools and rent prices in those neighborhoods, relevant to major cities around the country (see full list below). The resulting data shaves hours off the research time parents would have to invest to learn the relationship between school quality and rent prices in their area – time that parents rarely find without sacrifice.
Apartment Guide created this series of articles by charting the best public schools (only those with a score between 8 and 10 using GreatSchools 1-10 scale ratings) within selected cities. Next, it located the best areas with close proximity to top schools at every level of education (elementary, middle and high school) and then analyzed which neighborhoods are most desireable to apartment hunters wanting to be near those top schools.
Finally, Apartment Guide broke down the data to reveal which specific apartment communities in those neighborhoods offer access to the best schools for the lowest average monthly rental cost, using its own proprietary data on current rental rates.
