Great resources. Thanks for posting and I appologize as I'm sure this was posted many times here.

Is there any way to get the demographics or a SD/school?

You need to be aware that this year's attendance zones may not be next year's attendance zones as attendance zones can be changed by a simple vote of the district's board of trustees.

Among other things, the Census Bureau's online address search function in addition to indicating in which school district an address is located, provides demographics for that school district.

Walter posted a good link where you put up the address and it shows the district it is zoned for, hopefully he can post it again. It was a Census website.

Also, I wouldn't trust a realtor for that kind of info. A lot of realtors will tell you anything just to get a sale. A relative of mine was told that a house was in Wheatley Heights with Half Hollow Hills schools (which is a top school district) but it was actually Wyandanch with Wyandanch schools.

That's pretty low to lie about that!

I did post the link to the 2010 Census website, which is not as easy to navigate as was the 2000 Census website, which unfortunately is no longer available.

It's not necessarily lying as many real estate agents are not the sharpest tool in the box and may not do the proper research (due diligence) on the properties they are representing.

Sadly this statement, while extremely true, does not limit itself to real estate agents

I'm sorry but I do not see ANY way for a realtor to honestly mistake a house in Wyandanch for Wheatley Heights.

IF it was the other way around then I could understand a realtor making an error since most houses in WH have a Wyandanch mailing address (though most use Wheatley Heights, 11798 mailing address but the official post-office mailing address would technically be Wyandanch, 11798 though of course Wheatley Heights and Wyandanch are two totally different towns/hamlets).

For the demographics, just go to the homepage of your sought School District on GreatSchools - Public and Private School Ratings, Reviews and Parent Community and then click on "THE DISTRICT STATS" and then click on "Students"; then there should be a pie chart showing the racial makeups.

Here's an example;
Huntington Union Free School District in Huntington Station, NY | GreatSchools

(^^ Click on "THE DISTRICT STATS" which is under the giant 7 out of 10 box; THEN on the next page, click on "Students" and it will take you down to a pie chart showing the racial makeup)

Good luck.
