You may have recently noticed a new feature on your TigerLead search site – assigned public schools for each listing.

You can also view it in action on your search site. It can be found just above the map tool on each listing detail page.

About GreatSchools Rating
The GreatSchools Rating helps parents compare schools based on test scores and other available data, including student growth and college readiness. The GreatSchools Rating is on a 1-10 scale, where 10 is the highest and 1 is the lowest. Ratings are broken down into three categories: ratings 1-3 signal that the school is “below average,” 4-7 indicate “average,” and 8-10 are “above average.” Ratings for these categories are shown in red, yellow and green (respectively) to help you see the distinctions.
