My first goal is to find a great high school and middle school - Will public school work or do I need to consider private schools? I'll be working full time in Buffalo so need a great neighborhood for my 14 and 12 year old kids.

My son is 12 and plays travel hockey here in NJ. Where can I move in the area where there are great schools and a travel team he can play with? He'll be miserable if he can't play on a team and that will make me miserable.

What is your price range? What else are you looking for in a community/neighborhood? What location to say work, shopping, etc...?

My price range is $300 - 400,000. I need a relatively easy commute to Buffalo, good public schools or if necessary private schools, and a town near an ice rink. My son plays hockey so need to find a team for him. As a single mom, don't want to be totally out in cyber space suburbia, but something that's good for the kids and near a town.

Most towns have a travel team, they compete in the WNYAHL.

Western New York Amateur Hockey League

National Hockey Rankings - Youth Ice Hockey Teams by League

Good schools & a youth travel hockey team I would look at Amherst, Williamsville, Clarence, Hamburg. Based on your price range, you could easily afford a very nice house in a very safe neighborhood in any of these towns (you could actually get a really nice house for 1/2 - 3/4 of your price range in most of these towns).

What part of Buffalo will you be working in?

I unfortunately was just informed that I did not get the job so now I won't be moving to Buffalo. Thank you for your information, but I'm now back to the drawing board looking for work.

Thank you!
