Drexel Hill Reviews
I lived in DH from 6th grade(1996) on and off until 2012 or surrounding areas of UD township(Media, Springfield, Lansdowne, Aston, Newtown Square, and a few months in Darby, (lol). DH was in my opinion the best. I lived near the tressles and Kent Park and had a great upbringing. Laid back atmosphere and plenty to do. I've heard the schools have gone downhill, but I think that's everywhere now. The food and things to do around there, (convenience) is unparellel for the price that a lot of other major cities and suberbs cost. Plus the houses esp near City line and DHMS are spectacular!!!
I was born and raised in Drexel Hill. I lived down the street from a YMCA, within walking distance of my church, and a few blocks from a trolley line that could easily take me to a connecting hub for transportation to center city!
I have lived in Drexel Hill for the past 18 years. It's close to Philly and it's a great place to raise kids. The schools are ok but better in some spots and I have very mixed feeling about Upper Darby High because it is very large but very diverse. We will probably stay here for another ten years but won't be able to retire here because the property taxes are outrageous. I have made many friends in the neighborhood through kids in school and walking my dog. Another great feature about DH is the architecture as many homes in the area were built in the 20s, have very unusual features are very solidly built (stone foundations, cedar closets, stained glass windows).
