     Depends on what you're looking for. If it's schools, I can't tell you anything about the K-8. When we moved here 6 yrs ago, Pinkerton was on our list of schools, they were "busting at the seams" according to the Headmaster.

    I've only seen the part that touches Londonderry...

    Don't know too much about it...I've got some friends who go to church there, that's the extent of it. Good luck with your decision making!!!

     Oh without a doubt it does. But call, and ask about space. It's a super huge school, like 3000 students. So competitions to play sports is rather significant.

    We were moving because of an over filled high school, so I wanted one with space.

    Londonderry, schools are awesome as well. They have a wonderful reputation. It was my #1B (Pinkerton was #1A)...but the 3 houses I loved were either off the market or sold when we finally sold our MA house. That's how we ended up in Litchfield. Their high school is built for either 2000 or 2200 students and they were not near capacity 6 years ago.

    Plaistow---over filled

    Pinkerton---"busting at the seams"

    Londonderry---no house

    Hudson---reminded me too much of where I was leaving

    Yeah ds is only 13mo so we have a way to go, but with the recent issues with our condo our house hunting is becoming more serious. We want him to go to the same district all throughout- so we are looking at HS mainly. I will give them a call
