Are schools the ONLY thing you are concerned with or do you need to be on a certain side of the 'burgh? One of us can set you up on a free, automated MLS search to receive properties that meet the criteria you provide us. I have a video in my YouTube channel that describes the process in the 'burgh you can view here: http://youtu.be/zgQf4JUeSek
If you are interested, I can e-mail you a "buyer survey" to fill out to get started. You can research me by going to Zillow.com & type in my name and read all my past client reviews. I have over 60, the most in the entire state.
You can get school stats at http://www.schooldigger.com or http://www.greatschools.net
Whichever way you go, best of luck.
Otherwise, North Hills and South Hills both have highly rated districts (in the South, Upper St. Clair is usually in the top 100 in the country). Commute times can be 30-45 minutes from either (though I think the North is somewhat better for commuting, and also generally has lower taxes).
