Those are very good questions. I'm an agent who actually lives in Stoneham and my children go to school in Stoneham. I think I could probably answer a lot of these questions for you and assist you in the home buying process. Here is the link to the Stoneham public schools... http://www.stonehamschools.net.
There are a lot of very nice areas in Stoneham which I would be more than happy to show to you. Please feel free to either email me or call me directly. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
