Hi!! We are thinking on relocating to Saratoga Springs. We are currently living on Long Island. Our kids are 9 and 6. We are looking for some information on the schools in the area. We like a house that on the Division elementary school area. I couldn't find much information on the Middle School. We'll really appreciate some reviews on both schools. Thanks in advance!!!

Saratoga Springs City Schools have a very good reputation and cover urban, suburban and even some relatively rural areas in and around the city.

Some information from greatschools: https://www.greatschools.org/new-yor...Levels%5B%5D=e

Middle School site(only one in the district): https://www.saratogaschools.org/Mapl...ubpage=1377009

With this said, if you can, go check out the school for yourself or at least get to know some of the staff at the schools you are looking into.

There are also private options from grades Pre K-12th grade in the city as well: https://www.waldorfsaratoga.org/

https://www.stclementsschool.org/
https://www.saratogacatholic.org/

Hopefully others will chime in with more specific information.

Quite a few Long Islanders in that area so you shouldn't have much trouble adjusting. Just be ready for winters that are a bit more chilly and longer.

The school system has a good reputation. Really what matters is being active in their school life as I'm sure you know.

There's really no "bad" part of Saratoga Springs. It's basically the largest pocket of wealth in the region, so a house there isn't a terrible investment if appreciation is your goal.

Thanks so much Mr Jones 17!! I found very positive reviews on the elementary schools and high school but not much on the middle school. I have a daughter going to 4th grade and my son going to second grade.
