The reason for this question is that we were looking at a particular Wellesley home, and the selling agent mentioned a comparable home but commented that that home wasn't as nice, etc etc, and was in a "less desirable" elementary school district. I was given the distinct impression that some Wellesley elementary schools were generally considered more desirable than others.
According to those of you who have been kind enough to reply in this thread, this is not the case. I remain interested to hear from anyone who thinks that it is!
Can anyone tell me what the average distance from home to school is for the public Wellesley elementary schools and the children who attend them? I don't need hard numbers, just something like "most of the children who attend school X and Y live in the neighborhood close to those schools" while children who go to school Z live at more of a variable distance from that school."
Thanks for your reply. I was told that after redistricting, some of the Wellesley elementary schools have children coming from multiple neighborhoods of varying distance to school, while others are more geographically tight-knit. Is this the case, and if so, which schools fall into which category?
The only differences are in the bricks and mortar-- how recently a school has been built or remodeled. That is an observation, but it is not what learning is all about.
In the end just find the house you like. I guarantee you that you will love your school.
The only answers which would really be helpful to us are those who are willing to offer straight opinion that "X and Y are generally considered the best" with no more than three schools specfied.
