Parents, you know how it is. Kids - can’t imagine life without them, can’t wait until they learn how to shower and use deodorant consistently. Children add a wonderful complication to life, and that includes looking for a new home!

It’s not enough to find a place that’s big enough, with enough rooms for your children (and you) to have a little privacy and space, where you’re not stepping all over each other, in a neighborhood where you can shoo them out of the house and tell them to go play outside like you used to do when you were a kid (while walking uphill both ways to go to school in the snow), within a price range that will still let you take romantic vacations once they’re old enough to move out. You also have to worry about school zones.

The wrong school zone means that Tiberius Ulysses Farnsworth III might not get the education he needs, which means that he might never move out of the house, and you’ll still be making him grilled cheese when he’s thirty. The right school zone means that he’ll have the guidance, support and education to learn how to make grilled cheese by himself. Hopefully before thirty.

The situation gets even more complex when you have kids going to different schools. Tiberius in elementary school, Khlourtney in middle school, Kylo Ren in high school. Trying to find the perfect home in the perfect spot where all of the best school zones for each different school overlap is like juggling three kids, literally. And since the county updates the zone maps annually, getting up-to-date information can be a bigger hassle than trying to figure out the difference between the Florida Department of Education’s grading system for each school.
