It's time to head back to school!

If you're thinking about living in New Orleans with kids, picking a school is a big consideration, and it will likely affect where you focus your house hunt. The charter school system in New Orleans means that you generally don't *have* to live in a particular neighborhood to go to a specific school, but some schools do have a weighted entry system for children living nearby. For those that don't, it's still nice to shorten the commute. 

Of the 79 tuition-free charter schools in New Orleans, 7 received A ratings this past year. Let's take a look at each one and review some of the homes for sale nearby!
