Not sure if it is or is not. All of RH is not in the Roslyn SD, but I think it's all good districts (like Herricks). The houses are often times more modest on smaller lots, thought there are some parts by E. Williston where it's all brand new mansions. I think it's a matter of preference, but perhaps Roslyn proper is a bit more "exclusive."

Roslyn Heights is the lowest section of roslyn. It is correct that not all roslyn heights is roslyn schools! I have looked into moving into the summit. Be very careful as they are known to have very high assessements for long periods of time. Also, most of the units there have original heating and a/c units and need a lot of up-keep. We in particular almost purchased a unit there and only after an inspection found a huge amount of pool equipment in the basement - which we then found out used to be a pool/steam room with lots of mold under the floors as nothing was ever taken out properly and the sellers refused to provide a disclosure for the work that they had done on the unit. If we had proceeded who knows what we would have found under those floors and it would have been a MONEY PIT for us! Be careful! Good luck.
