Where did you go to highschool?

That's right......on new stands now is St. Louis Magazine's annual report on local public and private schools, including their student/teacher ratios, annual student expenditures, tuition, average SAT scores, and more

The St. Louis obsession with the "Where did you go to high school" question often leaves city transplants bewildered?! The fact of the matter is, St. Louis County is incredibly unique in the way that district quality, reputation, stigma, and standards vary dramatically from zip code to zip code. I will go so far as to say that right behind centrality, property value is not only correlated with but directly based on school district in St. Louis county.Anyhoo, if in the market to buy a home in the county or just plain curious... look for the March issue of St. Louis mag!
