No. The bottom line is if you could afford to live in one of those towns you would so why live in (for example) Yonkers and then pay for your child to go to a Hastings school (which depending on the school may not be better anyway). Edgemont, Scarsdale and Bronxville are known for the great schools but the taxes are extremely high. Since Yonkers is such a big district, what I did was compare individual schools to those of the districts that I knew had good elementary schools (like the above and listed and Tuckahoe). Otherwise, you're really comparing apples to oranges. What I found when I compared was that the top Yonkers school (PEARLS) is just as good academically as the ones I listed. Good Luck!
