Default moving to boston from california

Hi,
We are thinking of moving to Boston. I have 2 toddlers...I need to be in a good school area, within 30 to 45 minutes commute to Boston. I also would like to be in a culturally rich place since that is a reason for the move

Thanks

Within 30-45 minutes commute by car? public transportation? Weston, Wayland, Wellesley, Belmont are suburbs that have good schools. Brookline and Newton are even closer to Boston easily accessible to Boston by public transportation and have good schools.

Arlington is pretty decent in the school/distance regard as well.

Brookline is a very culturally diverse place and has great school systems. Because it is near many medical facilities there are a lot families that are there on fellowships and such from other countries. I work at a daycare center there and we have several families that move there at the preschool age to make sure their kids get into the public school system for Kinder. Brighton is close by and I believe you are still eligible for the brookline school district at a somewhat cheaper cost of living.
