Hello all...I am hoping some of you that live in York (Eliot or the Berwicks as well) could offer some insight.  We are considering moving to York (Eliot or Berwicks) with three children and would like to know more about the following:

 

1. School system:  how do you feel it is?  Are parents active within it?  Is it a good community feel?

2. Neighborhoods: are there neighborhoods/areas with lots of kids?  (I guess preferably from somewhere away from the summer madness....?)

3.  Community:  Are there a lot of fun community oriented things that go on all year?  We heard downtown York basically shuts down.  Are there local places that people interact and be social?

4. Winters: kind of goes along with #3, but given the area has such a high tourist population, what is life like in the winter (not as to weather, but as to socially).

 

That's all I can think of for now.  Thanks for any info you can give.


Cheers!
