How would you go about doing this on ArcGis?

So I'm in an intro to GIS class and this is our assignment, and I would like a bit of direction if anyone can help? Thanks!




Clarke county considers adding a new middle school serving children aged between 11 and 13 who live within 2 miles from the school. Six possible locations are proposed. There are three criteria to be used to make the final decision.

  • First, the new school should be at least 0.5 mile away from a state highway.
  • Secondly, the school location must be at least two miles away from existing schools.
  • Thirdly, the best school location serves the most juvenile population within 2 miles of the school location.

I know I have to create a buffer then reclassification, but I'm not 100% sure about the rest. Thanks.
