A Ruby interface to the GreatSchools API.
The GreatSchools API allows access to School Profiles, Test Scores, School Reviews, GreatSchools Ratings, School Districts, and City Profiles.
Before you can start using the GreatSchool API, you must register and request an access key at: http://www.greatschools.org/api/registration.page
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install great_schools
The first call you make should setup your API key:
GreatSchools::API.key = 'MY_API_KEY'
The first entry point is
GreatSchools::City to lookup nearby cities; get an
overview of a specific city; and find the districts and reviews associated with
GreatSchools::City.nearby('CA', 'San Francisco') # => list of cities neighboring San Francisco, CA. city = GreatSchools::City.overview('CA', 'San Francisco') city.districts # => list of districts in San Francisco, CA city.reviews # => list of reviews for schools in San Francisco, CA
The second main entry point is
GreatSchools::School to lookup schools in a
specific city or near an address; get a school profile; and find census data,
test scores, and reviews associated with it.
schools = GreatSchools::School.browse('CA', 'San Francisco') # => list of schools school = GreatSchools::School.nearby('CA', zip_code: 94105).first school.census # => lunch pricing, student/teacher ratio, ethnicities, etc. school.review # => list of reviews for the school school.score # => GreatSchool rank and recent test results
