Just be cautious before you buy a home to compare specific school facilities, and enrollment data, along with a districts current pssa standings.

With the deflationary pressures of today many private school students shall be transfering next year into their local public system!

i am moving my family to pa. we are stuck on whether to move to new hope or upper makefield.
we have one son who is 10 years old. any thoughts on the two school districts. the one thing that scares me is the size of council rock. we are coming from a small fishing community and the school here is comparable with the size of new hope. Any thoughts??

Take those PSSA scores with a grain of salt. Depending on the schools test prep and a subset of special needs children, any school can get on the "bad" school list. By 2014 ALL schools across the country are supposed to have 100% of the kids (including special needs kids) at a proficient level.

Come up here to Doylestown! Our high schools, CB East, West, And South, are all award winning schools! The area is extremely safe, with nice homes everywhere. And, as the county seat, we are the oldest town around, with lots of older houses and beautiful buildings.

Growing up in Bucks county (Council Rock), most of the schools are very good, having said that you may want to look at the areas as Council Rock, Central Buck, and New Hope solebury are all excellent, so it may be more of the right fit by neighborhood, though CR and CB will be larger schools when compared to NH Solebury so that may factor as well

Council Rock is a HUGE school district and yes some kids do get lost in the mix... New Hope/Solebury is an awesome little school district, so much smaller and more of what it sounds like you are used to. What is your price range?
