Thinking of relocating from Brooklyn to HV but having very hard time figuring out best school districts. Prefer to be on Hudson or Harlem Metro North lines. Thanks!

Mahopac in Putnam county. Convenient commute-wise (Metro North/Harlem line, I-684 and 84) and blue-ribbon schools.

You can also look into Monroe-Woodbury area, in Orange County..."They say good Schools here" but you can check for yourself....and also New City in Rockland is suppsoed to really good, depending on what your dollar range is.

Good Luck!

Arlington schools in Dutchess is the best schools district, followed by wappingers. Arlingtons principal won NYS principal of the year this year. Just do a search forums on "dutchess" or arlington schools. Depending on which side of the taconic..you have metronorth harlem or MTA Hudson..both are fine.

Default Check out Monroe-Woodbury and Warwick

Monroe-Woodbury and Warwick Valley School Districts in Orange County are great schools. They have consistently good ratings and high marks in the state.

Stay away from Wappingers. We are dealing with problems of severe overcrowding in certain schools or certain grade levels. If the school your child should be in has too many in that grade, they are shipping kids to a school within the district who still has space for that child. So if your child's feeder school is Fishkill, they might send you off to Brinkerhoff or Evans for class. The middle/junior highs are at capacity or beyond. The principal at one of the high schools told me the other day they expect the school to have a increase now in September of over 100 kids more(there's more than 2000) and by 2012 they expect it to increase to 400 more. They refuse to build schools here-keep doing bandaid fixes by adding trailers or a classroom or two to some schools.

The Wappingers school district too used to be accredited. They lost the accreditation back in the late 80's early 90's. The way things are going with the district, it won't be gotten back anytime soon. There are AP classes, but not enough for the amount of kids wanting them. It's gone downhill for the last 10 years-actually the principal said it resembles New Rochelle schools back 10 years ago.

I'm familiar with New Rochelle HS, that doesn't sound good - any improvements since last post. Arlington is a school in need of improvement???

Monroe Woodbury has a growing and I mean exploding hasidic population which is a huge huge problem. Mahopac, and Warwick are Long long commutes to NYC. And Clarkstown is rather pricey.
