Hello everybody!
I am thinking of buying a house in North East. Since I am not familiar with the area ( I've lived in Brooklyn before), I would appreciate any advise on kids friendly neighbourhoods and good elementary schools. I was thinking maybe Burholme or Rawnhurst or Fox chase.
Thank you so much!

Default Not many

Go to the school district of Philadelphia, and find out the school grades and test scores. Being an ex-Philly teacher, you will find there's not many good public schools (I sent my own 2 to private). Also, you are only allowed to go to the school you are zoned in...so I would find out exactly what schools are in my zone and then take it from there. I know that Anne Frank elementary is very good...but I am not quite sure what neighborhood that is in.

I send my children to a school called John Hancock. It is a decent school with decent teachers. It's wonderful compared to the school they went to last year. We used to live in San Diego and I don't consider John Hancock any worse than the school my children went to in San Diego. In short, I am satisfied so far but they have only been going there since Sept.

Some people say that Jenks in Chestnut Hill is a good K-8.

I do not know what Chestnut Hill's high school is.
