When we moved to the Bay Area all the relo consultants had books of test scores for all schools, not just high schools. This was heavily correlated to house prices. Assuming the kid is a high achiever, the availability of AP and GATE classes can be important, as is the availability of a range of interesting classes. Interesting depends on the kid.
