My wife and I are currently looking in Stamford for a home. Our realtor is showing us homes in the Springdale section. Is this a good section of Stamford and are there other good areas of stamford to look in? Also, what are the schools like in Stamford?

Regards

TM

Springdale is a good safe neighborhood. There are absolutely no unsafe neighborhoods in the 06903/06905/06907 zip codes.

I can't really comment on the schools.

Do you even know that part of Stamford. Springdale is very safe. Really only a small part of the east side of Stamford south of I-95 is questionable.

As for schools, if good schools are a priority, I would not live in Stamford. Stamford is a small city and has some of the issues you normally find in an urban area. Stamford buses students around the city to provide racial and test score balance which to me is not good. I would recommend being very careful if you are trying to find good schools. The website linked below will provide you with information on schools in Connecticut. Jay
