Hagstrom maps (buy in any bookstore) show school district boundaries. They don't show house numbers, though, so if the property is close to the line you'd want to call the school district to confirm. Also, agents usually have that information if you're looking at houses and MLS lists it.

You'd need to call the district to find out which particular school a house is zoned to.

Went to a map centered around Farmingville for me.....Census website is flaky sometimes, but it's great - you can find maps for almost anything.

Try this link -- enter a street address and a little box will pop up beneath it. Inside that box, "SCHOOL DISTRICT" should be listed along with several other categories.

The fact finder links will work, also if it is in Nassau you can put the address into the property search tab on mynassaucountyproperty.com website and it will show the district.

Hagstrom maps show town and county,and city boundaries---not school district boundaries.Calling the schools that border each other is always your best option.

My Hagstrom atlases certainly do show district boundaries - blue lines. The pocket maps might not, but the spiral bound atlases do, along with zip code boundaries.

I would call the school district in question and give them the address so that they can verify. We've been looking at homes for months and came across a few listings which indicated the property belonged to a certain school district, but the information was acutally wrong. That's one of the first things I do now when we find a house we're very interested in.
