Congrats on your home search. I would be happy to discuss this property with you, if you are not already working with a Realtor.
Regarding the schools, I advise clients to utilize the info on trusted websites, such as the Philadelphia School website-below and linked on Trulia, as well as contact the local police department to get answers to your questions.
There are many school options in the area, public, private, and so on. For information on the public schools in Philadelphia, you can visit the website directly: http://www.phila.k12.pa.us.
Again, if you need assistance with your home search, please feel free to contact me.
