    Is there a website or Facebook group that I can go to to ask questions about a particular school district? I have questions about one that I have applied to, but I don't know anyone in the school system I can ask who can give me and honest answer without being put in an awkward situation.

    You might want to start your search on https://www.greatschools.org/. It's based on across-the-board data and it fairly generalized, but it's a beginning.

    Greatschools is good. There is also schooldigger. You can check out reviews on Google and glassdoor. I would also recommend and see if there is some state evaluation that included something about climate.

    There are sometimes groups on Facebook or Nextdoor dealing with school districts. Members include teachers and parents. You could try to join one of those and ask questions.
