Colonial
upper Dublin
Wissahickon
Lower Merion

Not only do we want our kids to get a good education, but it is important for us to have them grow up with other jewish kids so that they can connect to the heritage. Can anyone offer some advice as to how i can do this kind of reasearch, both in general and specifically on the Jewish factor?

thanks.
If you can get into Lower Merion, you would hit the jackpot! They are the highest rated schools in this area.

Here is a website that has facts about school districts

Default Hello, stereotypes! Awful!

I would imagine you'd find a bigger population in Lower Merion, given the wealth in the area.
Because an area has "wealth", you believe there would be more Jews? Is that really an acceptable statement?
