There are 3 grammar schools on the North Shore district, Sea Cliff, Glen Head, and Glenwood Landing.
All three are located in residential blocks with lovely property, playing fields, and playgrounds. These 3 grammar school fold into the 1 middle school grades 6-8, and the high school is 9-12.

I have 3 children myself who all attended the North Shore Schools and went on to good colleges and pending careers. You can call me if you want more info.

As for Catholic Schools, we have All Saints Regional in our area. This is for K-8. This past week they had an open house, however, I'm sure they will show you around any time if you are interested.

Many times the seller's transfer tax is split 50/50 with the buyer and each party pays their own closing costs. Depending on the market place these costs are negotiated as part of the purchase contract between the buyer and seller.

If it is a seller's market the buyer may find themselves paying items that are sellers cost or split 50/50. Then if it's a buyers market the seller will be picking up more of the costs.

Hope this helps and good luck.
