Need some Philly advice

So give me a suggestion:

Fairmount, Mount Airy, Queens Village or Chestnut Hill?

Looking for good public schools up in that area.

Thanks as always,

Ciao,
Maj-AWACS

I don't know Philadelphia too well, but I think Chestnut Hill is far and away the best area of those mentioned.

Thanks. I actually had a long list of questions and for some reason my cut and paste to this post lost much of it. I'll come back tonight and post more about what I am looking for in Philadelphia.

Thanks

Those are all among the better off neighborhoods in the city.

For schools, you may find this link helpful.
