Hey all,

Okay.. so what are some of teh best SD's and towns in Chester County PA to live in. I had been considering Lititz Manheim, but we want to be a little closer to NY than Lancaster would leave us.. so looking at Chester, Deleware and Bucks.

This thread is about Chester.. but if you have input on the other two I mentioned, please share!

Thank you

I should add that we are not lookint to live in a very populated city.. more like a small town but near big town things..if you know what I mean. We don't want another Long island , in other words.

The 3 best school districts in Chester County are

1.Tredyffrin-Easttown: Towns include Berwyn,Paoli,Devon,Daylesford,Chesterbrook,Straffo rd,and Wayne.

2.Unionville-Chadds Ford: Towns include Unionville,Chadds Ford,Pocopson

3.Great Valley-Malvern,Charlestown,Sugartown,Willistown,East Whiteland,Chester Valley.

The Downingtown + West Chester areas have solid school districts and are great areas to live, especially West Chester. But the 3 school districts above are 3 of the best in all of Pennsylvania if you are looking for challenging schools.

How are the real estate taxes? are they comparable to NJ's super high taxes?

I believe that PA property taxes are generally lower than comparable areas in NJ. Delaware County would be an exception...but that won't matter since you're looking in Chester County.

And yes, although this thread is a couple years old , it doesn't appear that times have changed to affect its relevance. So it's all good to me.
