I live in Buffalo Grove and District 102 and we have a great network of friends. My kids are involved in many different sports which has given them to make friends throughout all the school districts.
As with any area though different subdivisions & pockets within the village itself will give you a different feel and will have things you may/may not like. There is a very wide spectrum of areas/price ranges within Buffalo Grove.
In addition to Buffalo Grove itself, many of the surrounding communities for the most part are very similar & do share school districts.
Buffalo Grove was named as one of the top fifty best places in the US to raise kids according to a Business Week survey. Working with national real estate researcher OnBoard in New York City, Business Week identified the top fifty communities based on five criteria: test scores, cost of living, recreational and cultural activities, number of schools, and risk of crime. Only seven Illinois communities made Business Week's top 50. Congratulations Buffalo Grove!
