It is further from downtown, so that's something to keep in mind but for her it's absolutely been worth it. Bellevue schools are also fantastic and get some of the highest ratings, so if Snoqualmie is too far for you, that's where I'd be looking next.
Being near the I-90 corridor is key to getting to downtown with a minimal commute. My Windermere office is just down the hill from this area and just off of I-90. I would recommend directly contacting anyone of the Real Estate Professionals that answered your question.

To answer your question: Bellevue Schools is one of the best school districts in the nation. That said, I believe they have different programs and service schools designed to meet specific special needs.
Here is the link to their webpage.
On the right sidebar there are information links for autism... here is a link for a copy of that list:
The dividing line between Issaquah and Bellevue School districts in the Lakemont-Cougar Mtn area puts some homes in one district and some in the other. For example, currently there are 6 homes listed in the Cougar Mtn area of which 5 are Issaquah Schools and one is Bellevue Schools. Most homes in Lakemont are in the Issaquah School District. The Issaquah School District also has an excellent reputation.
