Ooops. Sorry. You're right. The question the OP posed still has me perplexed though.

Good luck with your move.

I'm thinking it's some type of research project.

And thanks for the luck. We are really stressing it!

Thanks for all of the replies, I will look into each of these. If I find a "nationwide" tool/website that actually displays the ethnicity percentages in an easy to get to format, I will post it in the thread.

It may not actually reach 2000, I am looking for schools that are near to a set of predefined percentage rates, so I will have to sort through a lot. I will probably glance through 2,000 schools. Some of the percentages rates are complex, so a community or city profile will not help much in all cases.

It looks like Great Schools changed it's search tool. I couldn't compare more than eight schools at a time.

The area defines the diversity. My husband and I taught in an urban district which went from mansions to urban blight. We both taught in areas from ghetto to the rich. The district is basically minority -- but with a massive influx of immigrants, it is very diverse.

We live about 25 miles out of the city. Our backyard abuts a cornfield and the town -- where we have lived over 40 years and where our daughters went to school -- is still about 97% white. We are not a rich area; we are a in a town where suburb encroaches on our wonderful almost 4 acres -- bought for the land.

Pick where you want by town and compare the 5 closest districts. You will get diversity. Then decide what kind you like.
