Westchester County is rich in history. Settlers founded communities dating back to the 1600’s and many important battles of the American Revolution were fought here. Antique colonial houses and stone walls of these bygone eras can be found throughout the area.
The excellent reputation of Westchester schools is well deserved. The public school system features a high per pupil expenditure ratio with a low student to teacher ratio. Scores on the N.Y. State Regents exams and the SATs consistently exceed the average. A very high percentage of students continue on to college. In addition to its outstanding public school system, Westchester also has many of the best regarded private schools in the region.
