Below are links to both the school district sites and the Pennsylvania Department of Education Academic Achievement Report 2010-2011 sites for the three Main Line School Districts that you asked about.
Tredyffrin - Eastown
After your initial online investigation, I would recommend you meet with school officials and determine which school would best fit your child. Some programs like International Baccalaureate are only available at one school. Do your homework and know in your heart you probably can't go wrong with any of these highly rated districts.
Hope that helps!
You really can't go wrong with either of the school districts. I suggest visiting different schools and talking to parents. You can also visit my website below to get information on school districts in different townships. Good Luck!
Long & Foster
As you've mentioned, they're all excellent, so you're off to a great start. I'd recommend that you call/visit each of the schools and ask questions which are important to you and/or your children's needs or interests. My wife is the head of guidance in a local district, so I hear all the time how much parents get out of these types of visits. Ultimately, you are the only person who knows what you and your children need and want, so be careful of having someone else put their opinion or needs ahead of yours...do the extra homework (haha), it's worth it.
Best of luck...and welcome to the area.

Lower Merion, Radnor and T/E school districts are currently the top three districts in the area and have been for quite a few years, so concentrating on finding a home you love in a neighborhood you like should be your top priorities. The Main Line area is beautiful, and best of luck in your search.
More info. is available at my website, through school reports plus I have personal experience with all three districts and would be happy to answer questions you may have.

There's no simple answer to your question. As a Realtor, I can provide objective (factual) information, but not subjective (opinion) in order to help you reach a decision. The following link to my website will give you information on the schools in the area including statistical reports.
Other things to consider would be commuting distances to work, more urban/suburban setting, proximity to transportation, shopping, etc. All three are highly regarded school districts. Best of luck with your decision.
If I can be of further assistance, just let me know.
