If you are new to the Sacramento area and are scrambling to get your teenager into classes for the upcoming school semester, Sacramento Movers put together some information on the best schools in the area to help you decide where to enroll.

You can make a quick review of local schools by cruising through the school’s website as well as reading reviews on separate sites. Try to find out what programs the school offers such as athletic programs or availability of AP courses. If you have a little more time to put into the search, try to visit the top schools on your list to get a better feel for the atmosphere of the school. Visiting during school hours can be an especially good idea since it would give you the opportunity to speak to teachers and staff members onsite. The more time you have to put into the process, the greater chance of finding the right fit.
