Scarsdale has a great liberal arts school. Science program is decent; math is terrible.Honors classes have terrible teachers with huge workload;math tutors are a must! You must be your child's advocate. Admins will not watch out for your child. The village is run by a board who will only listen if you stand up to them as a group; but they do what they want without stops. Amenities are great, but for more $$$.People are friendly and engaging.If you want to do anything in your house, even repair anything, the village charges you to death. Summer camp is boring; but cheap. My children were bored to death as campers and were badly treated as councilors; avoid it.The village center is nice. Generally it is a fast pace, expensive, and stressful environment. But the competition keeps you on your toes and keeps your children competitive; which must be managed to keep it sane and real.

The school system is very good and it's a pretty safe neighborhood. I have lived here pretty much my whole life so far and I am thankful for the opportunities that living here has afforded me, like getting a superb education, being exposed to some diversity and overall, having a pretty good childhood. Scarsdale is also a great location as it is close enough to New York City to commute, but far enough to feel like a proper town. The neighboring towns are also very nice from what I have seen.
The experience I have with that area is I worked at the CVS Pharmacy in Scarsdale, and the people their are so friendly. Most people think they are stuck up but the ones I have encounter with is NO where near that. The conversations I hold with them end up leading to me networking with them as well with me doing 2 fulltime jobs and school fulltime. When I tell people what I do they just don’t see how I do it but I do. It’s people of different races that live there and I also live there and since I have been there I have nothing bad to say about the area.
