Considering the Big Move to the Upstater area? Need to pinpoint the best Catskills and Hudson Valley public schools in your house hunt?

Then stick with us this week as we explore the real estate market in the best school districts in Columbia, Greene, Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Sullivan, Delaware, Putnam, and Westchester Counties.

And, there are plenty. According to’s list of the 100 best districts in the country, Westchester County holds the most New York state spots, including positions in the top 10. Rockland County’s Nyack school district appears at number 68, and Cornwall in Orange County at 77. Arlington and Spackenkill school districts in Dutchess County come in at 79 and 85, respectively. The Catskills crack the top 100 at number 95 with New Paltz Central Schools in Ulster County.

While we will offer listings in Westchester County, those tend to be pricy. But never fear! There are still plenty of good school districts north of Westchester in more affordable communities. Where are they, exactly? You’ll have to stick with us all week long if you want to get educated on Catskills and Hudson Valley public schools.

Stay tuned, Upstaters!
