You cannot send your child to a public school "for free" if you do not live within the district's borders. The people living and paying taxes within the borders are paying for the district's education budget.

As Realtors, we don't talk about schools, but we can talk about budgeting. There are many ways of looking at paying for education. Some people find that living in an area with a proportionately lower tax rate and paying for private/parochial education separately, saves them money in the long term, versus living in an area where the taxes are very high and sending them to public school "for free" for 13 years or less. Sometimes it costs less to pay for education only during the years your children are using the education, especially if you plan to stay in the home for a long period time. This concept depends, of course, on how many children you have, their ages and their needs. Some people find that it gives them the freedom to tailor your child's educational needs and not get stuck beholden to the programs offered "for free" within a higher taxed school district. The bottom line is that you are paying for it either way. A 2,500 sq/ft, 3 bedroom home in Westchester may be taxed anywhere from $8,000 - $45,000 annually depending on location. I know this was not your direct question but I think it's something to add to the conversation as buyers can very often be school district oriented even when the numbers don't work.

The school aspect of HNOJ closed? That says a lot about that area now. Real Estate in the White Plains area sure seems more appealing along with leaving a congested Broadway (with attitude) in Valhalla and speeding cars with no parking most of the time in this once quaint area. What a disgrace.

Unfortunately there isn't an address attached to the listing. However, the train is walkable from many homes in the 10605 zip code.

The choice of a School District has become a critical issue for any homebuyer with children. Prices of properties will always be paired with the level of education a community can offer. Here is the 2014 High School SAT scores and details for the schools in all of Westchester.

And if you are looking for a property in a great school district, consider Chappaqua, Armonk, Rye, Scarsdale, Bronxville...all in the top ten High Schools in Westchester. I am a licensed real estate sales agent and Accredited Buyer's Representative at Grand Lux Realty. I would love to help you find that perfect property in the School District that meets your needs!
