I mean, the list is long and I'm sure I missed some. LIke Gail said - Realtors can't comment on the school districts - that's up to you to do your own research online. BUT - these towns and some others offer homes in that price range with 3 bedrooms.

Realtors, by law, are not allowed to comment on communities or school districts....this is a very personal measurement. We are, however, allowed to be the source of the source. If you go to http://www.GailGladstone.com, you will be able to look at "community info" and "school info" which will allow you to compare.

If you contact me off line at Gail@GailGladstone.com, I will be happy to set you up with a complimentary account on ListingBook.com which will allow you to control your search for a new home based on your search requirements.

Suggest that you should start with the house and area requirements and then as a medium-ish requirement plug in school district. Visit the places ( three or four at the least ) that are do-able and contact the local realtors to get an idea of what is going on. At that point get your school thing going.
