If you would like to go to you can view the school reports for Dutchess County. As a life long resident of the area I can say the people are frendly everywhere in Dutchess County.

My husband and I both grew up in Wappingers Falls and it's a great place to raise a family. Some of the schools are better than others as far as elementary schools go. All the kids end up either going to Van Wyck or Wappingers Jr High for middle school and then Ketcham or John Jay for high school. They are good schools I went to all of them and graduated. Just like everywhere else there are some kids that aren't good that are going to influence the rest of the school. I always felt like the teachers expected the students to go to college and become successful in life. As far as people being friendly, it's still NY. I think with NYers it takes a while for us to warm up to people but once we do we are the loyalist friends and will do anything for our friends.

Over 32,000 people call Wappingers Falls home. It has a great mix of business, residential and farm area while remaining close to Major transportation hubs such as the Metro North, Bus and major highways.

The best way to learn about schools and a neighborhood is to see and experience it. When you are ready, I'd be happy to give you a tour of the are, some unique features and arrange for you to see the schools.

Till then, check out for more information or visit City-Data for details

Perla by law I can't tell you if a neighborhood is good or bad the same goes for the school districts. What I can do is provide you with schools reports, demographic data, market report etc. I would be more than happy to to send you this type of data, email me at I always tell my clients to visit the community and talk to people; for example in a coffee shop. You would be surprise what you can find out. When people are proud of their community they won't hold back.
