With a few rare exceptions, pretty much all of the suburban SD's around Philadelphia are excellent. Some may be more excellent than others but does it really matter that much? Excellent is excellent.

This is true, which is why I always get a good laugh out of the "my district is better than yours" arguments

Back in my day it was Lower Merion, Abington, the two Springfields Cheltenham and maybe Upper Dublin. Plymouth Meeting was never one of the big players. Colonial SD didn't even exist until 1965. That's what I meant by "never was"

I can't remember. Like I told Ohio Girl, my poor mind isn't what it used to be.

Yes, most likely Roslyn. Abingtonians of a certain age might remember when that street would have been zoned for the former Hamilton Elementary School.
