Yes, it is possible to buy something close to San Francisco and still be within your budget.
The schools will be definitely better in the Marin County, some East Bay cities: Pleasanton, Fremont, Walnut Creek, Piedmond, Orinda and Peninsula: San Bruno, Millbrae, Burlingame( although the prices may be much higher here for a 4 bedroom home) and to some extend South San Francisco, Foster City, Belmont.
Here is some great housing data:
