If you are a house hunter with children or a child on the way or there is the dream of your child in your subconscious, there is no question that this question is on your mind while searching for a new home. You are not just searching for a great bathroom, you are looking for a lifestyle, a neighborhood, a community, and most likely that involves the library, the playground, the school.
In response to my first popular school blog which included many expensive school options for people living in the general northeast vicinity of the city of Philadelphia.
Here are some public school options as well as some more resources on schools in our area. (Roxborough, Manayunk, Art Museum, East Falls, Mt. Airy) Some of these schools are free, some have a small tuition. It will be up to you to investigate if it is a safe and good education for you and your family. Must we always relate more dollars to equaling better education?
The Big Backyard Nursery School, Chestnut Hill
If you have time to volunteer as a parent, this might be the school for you and your little one.
ITB School of Sustainability, Wynnefield
This school has a small tuition cost and believe in teaching children the importance of farming and sustainability at a young age.
Here is a list of some public elementary schools in the area which have a great to kind of OK reputation:
Girard Academic Music Program, Philadelphia
Mifflin Elementary, East Falls
Shawmont Elementary, Roxborough-Manayunk
