Families move to Westchester County for the schools. However, the daily commute into the city can be grueling so proximity to NYC is an important factor. The good news is, you can have your cake and eat it too! Here are the top Westchester School districts within a 45 minute train ride to NYC. The school rankings are based on Niche 2019 Best School Districts in Westchester County. One thing to note is that since Westchester School districts often pull students from several municipalities, depending on where you live, your closest train station may be different from what we have in the table below. Availability of parking spots at the train station and train frequency is also an important factor to consider. You may end up having a better commute by driving a little farther to train stations with more parking spots and more frequent trains to NYC.
