    I was wondering if anyone has a particular website that they go to in order to research the schools that they are interviewing at? I understand going to their main website, and in my state I can go to the state website and search the report card for the school, but other than those websites, I'm not sure if there is somewhere else to go to.

    Thank you for your assistance!

    I'm not sure what else I should know about the school. I mean, I know what clubs are offered, the race and gender percentages, the scores for the state tests in the subject I'm interviewing for, their dress code, and other school related info that is on the school website. I live in the district, so I am familiar with the area to speak of working with children of this region.

    What else should a job seeker know about the school?

    What about the percentage of students receiving free or reduced lunch? Students with special needs?
