Willow Grove could be Abington or Lower Moreland. All four towns are good SD's and pretty high taxes. Only problem with Willow Grove is it's a little bit downscale (but it's only an attitude) and yes it's a little further from S Philly.
A tiny sliver of Willow Grove is even in Upper Dublin, but the street the OP mentioned is entirely in Upper Moreland.

OK- thanks. Hadn't heard that about Abington SD. Seems that everything is in decline nowadays.

Including some posters on CD. Abington just rebuilt all of it's older schools to make them brand new and state of the art.

That's reassuring. I'd thought that Abington was a good school district, and had been told that by eveyrone (including my realtor...) and hearing that it wasn't took me by surprise. Thanks for clearing that up!

The only way it could be in decline is because 40 years ago it was one of the top 10 public school districts in the country and since then there has been so much development that other towns and school districts have sprung up to challenge it's supremacy. It is still one of the best but the competition has mushroomed.

From speaking to people who lived in the area several decades ago, they'll say that Abington was one of the best districts in the area. It's still good - probably in the top 25 or so in the philadelphia area, but there are just a lot more good districts now than there were back then.

Colonial SD has been consistently good (not that Abington is bad).
