This interesting and entertaining site is designed as a study aid for students of literature and American History. What I like about it is that it goes beyond the sort of cliffs'-notes treatment aims to address the sort of questions high school and sometimes college students have, like "What's up with the Title/Epigraph/Ending?" and "Why Should I care?" Hopefully this makes it more useful for advancing the student's reading and less for handing 'em the answers. I especially like that the literature section has a Sex Rating for each book; that there are famous quotes and 'brain snacks' to go with both topic areas. A great study aid/discussion starter.

Zillow.com not only gives you estimated housing prices, it will often give you house/neighborhood frontage pictures even when Google Maps doesn't have them.

GreatSchools.net provides both parent ratings and their own ratings. Greatschools.net ratings are based entirely on standardized test scores.

http://education.state.nj.us/rc/ gives you 'New Jersey School Report Cards' which include avg pupil:teacher ratios and other statistical data, also text contributed by the school and district to the report, as well as the NCLB reports.
