This is truly the age of information....you can check the New York State Department of Education's website and access the school "Report Card" that will provide you with all of the information necessary to arrive at your own conclusion.
Everything from scores on NYS tests, discipline, special education, staff qualifications, student demographics, schools in need of improvement etc. will be available to you.
are you thinking of purchasing real estate in either of these towns? Or is a friend or family member?
Hey - fyi, don't point to your head and say your trulia name..."mt"...
