In Orange County - Minisink Valley or Warwick area.

Can get the train easily enough in many places.

You raise very valid points. The Kiryas Joel is definately something to consider.......but do they come under the MW School District?

You're right about Mahopac, Warwick & Clarkstown.

Any other suggestions for a good school district that is not too far away from Manhattan and is not overly pricey? I definately do not want to live in Long Island.

am a fan of Washingtonville schools. High marks, local students are respectful for the most part. Rated well by the NYTimes report on test scores and whatnot. Surrounding areas are nice, safe, ok for kids to walk to school and the like.

Only problem is Washingtonville is sometimes tough to get in and out of during high traffic times....especially for a commute to NYC.

I like the town of Monroe, especially Harriman. The Metro-North is right there and driving wise, its not that bad to get to.

The Kiryas Joel is the only eyesore.

Kiryas Joel has nothing to do with the Monroe school district.

I would think so also. See Post #10 above. I would think the Kiryas Joel would have their own school system.

You will see when they take over the School Board (Public), like in East Ramapo/ Spring Valley school district.

They tried to expand their borders in the past but lost that battle with the town. The KJ are confined to their boundaries. They can build as many condos as they like.

If you're driving traffic can be a pain, but if you're commuting by train it's painless
