There really isn't anything out there that is very good because every state measures things differently. One site I like is Expansion Magazine. It is for businesses looking to relocate and it has the Education Quotient where they look and many different areas and the health of their schools both academically and financially. Good Schools.com or something like that is an ok site but you have to pay to get your reports. They look pretty much at graduation rates of various districts and the % of kids going on to post-secondary education. Those are usually fairly good indicators of good academics but every state figures their graduation rates differently so keep that in mind. Some states take the kids that start in 9th grade and take how many kids finish 12th grade where some states take how many 12th graders start the year and how many finish (not as accurate that way).

Here is a website in terms of grad rates (you can look more at the foundation, to see if there is anything else)
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation | Education Interactive Map (http://www.gatesfoundation.org/StoryGallery/UnitedStates/ED_iMap_GradRates.htm - broken link)

You can also check out here:
National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Home Page, a part of the U.S. Department of Education

There actually should be data due to No Child Left Behind
