What are the best school districts in the suburbs of Philadelphia?

We are relocating to area outside of Philadelphia called the "Mainline" and have children and don't know where is best. Suggestions?

I'm a mom of 3 and a full time Main Line real estate agent for over 10 years living in Bryn Mawr, living in a four plus bedroom house. Yes you will be able to find a great house in a great school district. All of my kids went to Harriton High School, a public school in the Lower Merion school district, which was rated in the top 5 by Philadelphia Magazine.

The Main Line has more than one highly rated public school district and many great private schools. Here are some links where you can find Main Line school information on the web.

Main Line Real Estate | Main Line School Information Web Sites Below are links to both the school district sites and the Pennsylvania Department of Education Academic Achievement Report 2010-2011 sites for three highly ranked Main Line School Districts located in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

Radnor School District

Radnor Achievement Report

Radnor Schools Web Site

Lower Merion School District

Lower Merion Achievement Report

Lower Merion Schools Web Site

Tredyffrin - Easttown

Tredyffrin - Easttown Achievement Report

Tredyffrin - Easttown Schools Web Site

You can also find opinions about Main Line schools at the Great Schools website.

That site allows searches for specific schools, for example Lower Merion High School.

I hope that helps :-)

There is a wealth of information that you can find on the internet.  If you go to http://www.prufoxroach.com/ and enter Bryn Mawr in the box marked Market Conditions, you will find market stats as well as great information about the award winning schools in the Bryn Mawr area. 

BTW, on 11/11 you will see our Prudential Fox & Roach name debut with the iconic Berkshire Hathaway Home Services name and brand for the first time. Together with Fox & Roach, already a market share leader here on the Main Line, the two names will redefine real estate leadership in our region and across the country.  Berkshire Hathaway is known for its unquestioned financial strength and ranking as one of the most respected companies worldwide.  This speaks to a commitment to business ethics and integrity over all else, as consistently demonstrated by its chairman, Warren Buffett.

I look forward to hearing from you and having the opportunity to share our products and services with you.
