[ - ] DH works in Long Island (nassau county) and I work in Manhattan. We both want to move to an area with a good school district (db is still an infant). Can only afford no more than 300k for a single family and no more than 400k for two family with full basement. Any suggestions? Every "top" school I've checked out is a 2+ hour commute to Manhattan. thanks for any help 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Since DB is an infant and you might not be able to sell an apartment to upgarde (world financial crisis out there), I would maybe just keep renting and saving for now. By then you can maybe get a job on LI, who knows. If you really want to buy in a good district that is commutable maybe an apt in Great Neck. But personally I wouldn't want to be a rich person there, forget "poor" Great Neck person. Port Washington, Rockville Center, are options down the line. [ Reply | More ]

-- But Forest Hills is also an option. Apartments are reasonable, commute doable to both places, public elementaries very good. I bet the friend you make there will end up on LI too one day. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] It's true that ERB uses code words and they change annually. People who try to outsmart the system deserve to be "outed" this way. Besides, it's an intelligence test. Why have your kid try to go to a school where he or she is going to be miserable? 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]
General Topics 10.23.08, 06:31 PM Flag

it is highly unlikely that a child will end up miserable because they're too dumb for a school. school visit and school report have to match. it's an intelligence test that was never designed for the purpose it's being used for. so whether prepped or un-prepped, it just doesn't mean that much to me if a child does really well or not.
