I moved here 12 years ago with 4 children....the school rankings are very high. The high schools were written up by the washington post as being on the list og the top 100 most challenging high schools in America. The neighborhood is safe...we love it!!!!!!!!!

I have raised three children in Levittown, NY and lived here for 20 years. I absolutely love it and always will. My youngest child will be graduating MacArthur HS in 2016 and we plan to sell and move out of the state, as it will only be my husband and I. We have had great neighbors, enjoyed boyscouts, the beaches, parks and everything you want and need is close by such as shopping malls, shows in Manhattan, and camping and rafting in upstate New York.
Good luck and I hope you find your dream home to raise your children in, as we have.

A good place to live should be based/dictated on personal preferences, wants, needs, lifestyle, etc. Therefore if unfamiliar with the area, do take the time and visit more than once; explore the area and then determine if your comfort level can be reached; keep in mind that opinions are oftentimes subjective, what may be good for one, may not necessarily be the case for another. For school information see links below.....
