Hi everyone

We will be moving very soon to the Collegeville area as part of a relocation. I am sick at heart to leave our beautiful and funky beach house and area, and I know that I can't have that in PA (I'm not flaming, just saying that I have come to terms with the fact that there is not a beach nearby, so I am trying to just find something that will have good schools and be close to my husband's work. We kept hearing that the Methacton school district was one of the best in the area, and the town of Audubon is the closest in that district. Does anyone have any tips about that area, or any advice? I would appreciate any input that any gives me.
Thanks so much!!

Thumbs up Methacton Schools

My sister-in-law lives in that area (Trooper). Her 2 boys go to Methacton schools. Those are supposedly the best schools you can send your children to in Montgomery Cty. Her boys are doing well there. And if there are any problems, the teachers are sure to catch it early and act on it. Audobon is a nice area. Clean, safe, and quiet. My sister-in-law lives near a shopping center which includes a supermarket, Home Depot, Walmart, and a Michael's or AC Moore (not sure which). Plus she also doesn't have to go far to smaller stores and fast food places because she lives close to the main drag (Ridge Pike). If she wanted to, she could walk to some of these places if the weather was bad. My other sister-in-law lives not too far from there, in West Norriton. I don't know if they share the same school district. But it's also a nice neighborhood; the homes are a bit newer and she's further from the main drag. Both areas are worth what the real estate sale prices are asking.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for your input Joyce ,

I was a bit surprised at the real estate prices -- even coming from CA and CT! The houses do look nice and big though (and Home Depot is always a plus). It's now just between that area and Princeton...
