It is always a good idea to investigate and learn about the area and school districts that you are considering moving into- BEFORE you buy. In fact, may times, our search for properties is specific just to one or two school districts or areas based on other family needs. For many buyers with children the school district that they move into is one of the conditions for purchase. To help our clients and customers make better buying decisions for their family, we provide the following references.
Please use the map at the bottom of this page to search for schools, their location, district, and other school information by selecting PA and the cities you would like to search, or, simply enter the zip code of the area and click Search Schools.

Crime and Safety Search
Please note, that although you may find websites that report crime and safety statistics for the area around the home you are looking to purchase, our testing, has found that although reports are provided, when we looked deeper into the data, we found that the area looked safe because NO data from that area was being contributed to that database.
For your utmost safety, we suggest you call the local law enforcement for the most accurate information. You will want to ask about two types of crimes: crimes against people, and crimes again property. You will also want to ask about if there are any registered sex offenders that they know about living in the area where you are thinking of buying. You can also search the Pennsylvania State Police Megan's Law Website database by linking to the PA site: https://www.pameganslaw.state.pa.us and using the Search Offenders tab at the top of the page.
