I attended both Sacred Heart School & Greenburgh schools, which serve all of Hartsdale and part of White Plains). Better discipline & values at Catholic school...better preparation for life at Greenburgh schools. Public schools are very integrated racially & economically but it works. From age 5, these kids go to school with each other so there is a lack of racism. Busing is not an issue because the high school is in the woods so nearly everyone is bused. Hartsdale has mature neighborhoods so no risk of overdevelopment near your home. Nice parks, near shopping. Many in my old neighborhood owned their homes for 40+ years, though there are younger more transient couples who move in and out.

A lot of people love the elementary schools in Greenburgh. Very often they move to the Edgemont School District at the high school level.

All the best!

My brother and I graduated from Woodlands HS (1978 and 1983 respectively) and it was a great school with great teachers. In fact the accounting program there is why I became an accountant who has also taught college. What has happened to make is such a bad school now? I left NY 23 years ago.

A lot of people really like the Hartsdale elementary level schools and move to Edgemont or Private High School.

All the best!

Hartsdale is a great place to live. One of the very few towns in central to lower Westchester where you can buy a NICE home (not a fixer) with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths under $700K with a great size yard. There is a small village with a weekend, farmers market & great restaurants, 30 minutes to NYC, the best town pool around, great parks, a brand new library, any every kind of shopping imaginable. That said - if all that appeals to you and you don't want to move up north or pay $780K and crazy taxes for a fixer upper in a better district...you can do what I did. I sent my oldest to the public school until high school, then onto Good Counsel Academy a gorgeous, wonderful private school for high school (and there were other terrific private schools to choose from). She loved it, it DID NOT break the bank by any means, and she's off to a fantastic college this year. My youngest, still in the Greenburgh public schools will do the same when he gets to HS. Best of luck to anyone looking in the area - I recommend NOT dismissing the area because of the schools - it's a terrific place, the pool is like a country club for the kids during the summer and you can get a wonderful home.
