My husband and I may be possibly relocating to Waynesboro, PA from CT in the next month or so. I have a two year old daughter and would like to get some information on the local school systems.

Default waynesboro

This may be a little late for you, but maybe it will help somebody. I am originally from Waynesboro, and with the exception of a couple of years my Dad was stationed out of the country, lived there up until I graduated high school. Waynesboro has actually grown quite a bit, with the new superwalmart, Lowes and several restaurants that never existed in my time there. Washington Township is experiencing a lot of growth. Many of the farms are being converted to residential or commercial properties.
The new houses cost 250K and up, but you can still find some older homes "in town" for much less. People from D.C. and Baltimore have their family living in these new homes and commute either weekly or daily.

There are a lot of nice parks. The township has one called Pine Hill which has hiking trails, a skate park for the kids, baseball, soccer fields, etc. Also Red Run park is good for kids. The town itself has memorial park which is nice, but older. It does have tennis and basketball courts.

As far as the schools, they were great when I went, but that was years ago. I was very well prepared for school. My niece and nephews go there and my sister hasn't complained. They had a lot of science options when I was there.

My other sister lives in Shippensburg which is about 30 minutes away and also very nice.

Sports are big in the area both high school, middle and outside of school.
You have Hagerstown or Chambersburg for mall-shopping.
If you like quaint little shops, Gettysburg is not too far away and beautiful to visit.

Hope this helps!
