I suggest you review the states ranking of the Delaware school districts at http://www.doe.k12.de.us/reports_data/sd.shtml. There are also a mi-rad of private schools. You asked about commuting in the Delaware, NJ and Philadelphia area. The roads are in reasonable condition and a 20 mile commute is more than tolerable. There are regional rail services in the Wilmington to Philadelphia corridor. and Philadelphia International Airport is close by. The biggest difference is property taxes which average 1/3 in Delaware as compared to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland.

I hope this answers some of your questions. If you have others, feel free to contact me at homedelaware@earthlink.net. Thanks, Wayne Bartron

I concur with Sophia, Realtors can only show you homes and elaborate on the area or schools. Typically, I will send a client of selection of homes and allow them to pick the areas and school districts they want to look at. If they want school or crime information I send them to the websites. Good question!

As agents, we are not allowed to comment on school districts and schools. Here is a website that you can use to review things that are important to you: http://www.greatschools.org/

We also have additional resources as agents that I can forward to you. Just shoot me an email and I can provide more specific info.
