The good news is you have several choices. There are many wonderful school districts & towns all along the North Shore of Long Island. Check out my web site: http://www.EdieSellsLongIsland.com and go to community links; I have several of the towns' school districts there for you to check out. Let me know if this helps you.
The good news is that you have great choices to make on the North Shore of Long Island. We as realtors are not allowed to give preferences but I can say researching through the local libraries in each community is a start. I am very familiar with the North Shore of Long Island and I live in and love the area. The Long Island Sound hugs the North Shore and offers beaches and water sport activities. There are towns and villages, large and small dotted all along the coast and each one has its own personality. I invite you to come and take a tour...it's glorious in every season; right now the willows are just beinning to sprout and the forsythias & daffodils are in bloom. Edith
