My husband and I have 3 kids,(3, 7, and 8) and are currently living in Queens. We are considering moving to East Setauket because we happened upon a house that is for sale (Fixer-upper) that is PERFECT FOR US. We have heard that the schools are great (Three village). Our children attend a very small school here in Whitestone. Although I love the people here, the school is subject to every budget cut there is. They have art class only once a week, no science classes (just a workbook), music and dance only 6 months out of the year-(upper grades switch with the lower.) We want more for our kids. Is this a good place to move? It is hard to tell with this crazy winter and all the snow. We've never been there in the spring/summer. Can someone tell us if it is a nice place to move a family? My husband's a city firefighter and we know it is a trek but we feel it is worth it if the schools and community are great. Is it? Thanks.....

which part of East Setauket? Some areas are very nice with low taxes. By Arrowhead School there are good homes with low taxes. Three village is an excellent school district which prides itself on it's science program. If you are looking for a family friendly area, some parts of Stony Brook are great for kids. The schools you won't be dissapointed in.
