That's a good one.
While we didn't have much of a choice when we moved to California, we talked to the principal of the junior high school my oldest was going to go to. We had an issue because the higher taxes we paid in NJ resulted in a period more of school a day, so she was almost a year ahead of her peers here. That he recognized the issue and was willing for her to take classes in the high school down the block made us feel confident about the place, and we were right.

Talking to the administration should give you more useful data than external reviews.
