Hello everyone. I have finally narrowed down my target area on my next house purchase to East Hills with Roslyn SD zoning. I was wondering if anyone had any insights about the following:

Is there a differentiation (perceived or actual) between East Hills south of Harbor Hill Rd versus north of Harbor Hill Rd? Both areas look beautiful but obviously the homes in the northern section are generally bigger and more expensive. Is there any good reason to look only in the northern area? Or not really? We can go as high as $1.5M for the house but I would much rather keep it under $1M.

My older child is currently receiving special services at school for speech and OT. He hasn't been formally diagnosed with ADHD yet but I think that is the direction that we are headed. Does anyone have any experience with special services at East Hills Elem and/or the Roslyn SD?

Finally, if we move to this area, I will need an after school program for both of my kids (elementary school ages). Does anyone have any experience with the Roslyn After School Program (located at Heights elementary)? Yay or Nay? If nay, are there better alternatives?

Thank you!

Can't answer relative to other questions but be careful to check the surrounding area south of HH Rd. There is a small section that is HUD housing that I would avoid. Kind of across from HH Rd and going South on the right side.

Hi,
We are in east hills with east hills school. I think east hills elementary scored slightly higher last year, but it seems like both are comparable schools. There are apartment housing in roslyn heights section, but it will not be in your backyard, and as far as I can tell people who live there seem to be single people or young couples. There might be some affordable units too.

As far as after school, most people do jcc, they pick up straight from school.
Can't offer much help in terms of special ed services.
