When searching for a home in Scarsdale, you might find a home with a Mamaroneck address but having the choice of either Scarsdale or Mamaroneck schools. This is known as the Mamaroneck Strip and the homes in this area are very desirable.
“There is only one school district serving resident children of the Town/Village of Scarsdale, which is known as the Scarsdale Union Free School District, aka Scarsdale Central Schools; however, at the time of its inception and for unknown reasons, school district boundary lines were drawn just outside of the jurisdictional boundary lines of the Town/Village.
Certain parcels situated outside of the jurisdictional boundaries of the Town/Village of Scarsdale along its southwesterly border, though situated in the Town of Mamaroneck, are located within the Scarsdale School District. This area is known as the Mamaroneck Strip.
Parcels that are ‘bisected,’ or partially situated within the Town/Village of Scarsdale and partially within the Town of Mamaroneck, have the option of attending either Scarsdale, or Mamaroneck schools. “
