Best Schools in Boston 2012

Best Schools in BostonOne of the most important factors to consider when shopping for a new home is the quality of the schools nearby. Good schools can have a positive impact on the resale value of your home. And towns with good schools reflect the overall economic health of the community, which can mean better city infrastructure, well maintained parks and a thriving downtown area.
