If you look Williamsville schools' demographics are far different that Williamsville itself.
If you get caught, you wind up paying. Districts will follow kids home to find out if the address is legal.

Yes, I guess Lancaster must have good schools. But I mostly hear that Williamsville and clarence have good schools, so anyway we might just think about buying in the williamsville/amherst/clarence area next year, by that time we will be able to afford at least a substantial down-payment. Thanks for everyone's input.

Here's some good websites to look at in regards to schools and home prices in the area: New York schools - NY elementary, middle and high school information

Does anyone know where I can find a map that outlines all the school zones? I'd like a guide to go on so when I do my research I'll know what specific city areas to avoid and can mark up the map.

Thanks!

The only thing wrong is that the roads are not here.

It's ok, it gives me an idea at least. Better than having nothing. When we get closer and I research more rentals I can pin point the schools with the address search.
