In Monroe and Ontario counties, the school-tax burden varies widely, according to an analysis of data from the state Department of Education that will appear in the 2014 Rochester Business Journal Schools Report Card to be published tomorrow.

Property owners in East Irondequoit pay the most on a comparative basis. In their district, taxes on a $200,000 house in 2013 totaled $5,628.

By contrast, school taxes were lowest in Gorham-Middlesex (Marcus Whitman), at $2,780.

Also paying more than $5,000 in taxes on a $200,000 house in 2013 were homeowners in Manchester-Shortsville ($5,482) and West Irondequoit ($5,314).

In terms of graduation rates for the 2009 cohort, here’s how those districts rank: East Irondequoit, 14th, Manchester-Shortsville, 11th; West Irondequoit, 10th; and Gorham-Middlesex (21st). The district with the top graduation rate—Honeoye Falls-Lima—had a tax burden of $4,358 on a $200,000 house in 2013.
