DrexelBrook was a pretty good area with easy access to the city but again my knowledge is 20 years old

Thanks for the info - I'm not a teacher, but many friends to whom I've spoken about moving tell me that the price of real estate is driven by the school district reputation and statistics. I'm hoping to make a long term purchase, but in a time where anything can happen...additionally, I've seen the area superficially, and it looks charming - but not knowing a lot about it, I'm concerned with the variable reports I see. I just want to feel as safe as I can, within reason, before I make a purchase. Any additional comments would be welcome - again, thanks so much.

You're right...she was a Prendie. I thought you meant Upper Darby (the town) vs. Upper Darby (the high school).

If your worried about school districts and property values, half of Drexel Hill - the Pilgrim Gardens section is actually in the Haverford School district which has a very good reputation. We looked at this area when we were househunting and it seemed very nice & well maintained.

That would be anything west of Rt1, Township Line. I never had any problem with the Upper Darby School District, of course I left there in the late 80s

I agree that Broomall is very boring lol.. My parents just turned 70 and 65 and it is a perfect place for them.. UD School district is doing ok from what I hear but DH does have some very nice sections as u move out closer toward havertown/springfield.....alot different from my part of Drexel Hill elementary school and the old saint charles) which is highly congested and parking is very difficult. Anything south of Garret road in Drexel Hill is working class/middle class.. only a few pockets of "bad" parts in dh generally near the lansdowne and clifton heights borders.. state and lansdowne and township and lansdowne have more of working class row homes and twins but its seems more desirable then southern drexel hill..
