How do I figure out which school DS will go to?

I know I have a while to truly worry about this, since DS is only 2.5, but how do I figure out which elementary school he would be going to? There are 7 or 8 of them within what I would consider walking distance, and none of them have a 'district' map or anything on their website that says which part of the city they serve.

I also can't find any info on what the birthday cutoff is for entry. All of the websites have TONS of info on the schools, but they don't have these two (what I would consider to be) basic and important pieces of info.

Do I just call the schools one by one and ask, starting with the one closest to our house? The reason I want to find out is because I want to do research on the school. I am debating homeschooling but FIL is definitely not on board with that (he thinks kids NEED to be in school) and DH is kind of wavering on the idea (he's not impressed with public schools, and he knows we can't afford private school, but he is intimidated by the possible 'implications' of homeschooling).

I want to have research under my belt so that when the time comes I can have an informed discussion about whether or not DS will attend public school.

Figure out the name of your school district, they should have a web site with all the schools and their tests scores. If not you can call them, they'll tell you which school your child will go to. You can also figure out if there are any charter schools in your area, if you want to go that route.

Call the school district office. They will be able to tell you based on your address.

But you say your little one is only 2 1/2 - don't be surprised if there is some redistricting done, especially if there are several schools close to your home. By the time he's ready for school, it may have changed.
