Crofton Real Estate Q&A: What school will my kids attend if I buy that house?
This is a question that I hear from most relocating home buyers. Think about it… you probably asked that question yourself when you started looking at homes in this area.
You really can’t go wrong with any school in this area.
Maryland public schools rank #1 for the fifth year in a row, according to nationwide rankings by Education Week and, according to U.S. News, three Anne Arundel County Schools are in the Top 15 statewide: Severna Park, Broadneck and South River. Students from many areas of Crofton and Gambrills, as well as Davidsonville and Edgewater, attend South River. Many Annapolis and Arnold students attend Broadneck. Students who live in Severna Park and some areas of Arnold attend Severna Park.
Since the quality of our schools is such a major draw for potential home buyers, it seems a little crazy that so many real estate agents fail to include the school names for each and every listing. And some of those listed are incorrectly identified. So what’s a home buyer to do?

In response to an inquiry from a relocating military family this morning, I did a little research and came of with this list. I’m going to include it with this post, in case you might find it helpful:
