School Districts are very high on most people's list when deciding where to live. We've put together this little guide to help you understand Northern Kentucky's schools better. Each of the links to the different school districts takes you to a page where you can drill down to specific information about individual schools in that district. We've linked to the State of Kentucky's own official database of schools to keep everything as objective as possible. We've also provided the School Report Card link so you can see how the schools in that district are performing. Northern Kentucky also has one of the most extensive collections of Catholic and private schools in the nation but it's not a part of this list. Every realtor on the Frank Littrell team knows about Northern Kentucky's schools and can be a great resource for you when you are trying to make a decision where to live!
