A district in NY State that comes to mind and that is around the demographic percentage is the Troy City SD in the Albany area, which actually has a tech sector: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tech_Valley . That district has neighborhoods with row houses to suburban style housing outside of Troy city limits. Troy City School District |

https://nces.ed.gov/globallocator/in...=1&CS=16C9A38C

So, finding a school district like that may be another thing to consider.

I was also thinking in terms of the Midwest and OH, some Columbus suburban SD's such as Pickerington, Canal Winchester, Gahanna-Jefferson, Westerville and Reynoldsburg are some to look into.
A couple of other districts in the bolded state that is at or very close to the first part of the criteria.

No problem...Personally, while East Irondequoit pretty much fits the first part of the criteria, I'd say that the Rush-Henrietta SD would be a better fit. It only lacks in terms of the percentage which isn't too much lower(about 10-12%, depending on who you include), but its black median household income is higher than all other groups in the district while still being generally middle class, it is the first suburb that black people in the area would really move to back in the late 1960's/early 1970's when Xerox and Kodak were making a push to hire more black people and it has a better academic reputation, while still being relatively diverse. It also is a big shopping hub and is home to Rochester Institute of Technology. Some of the school's HOF members illustrate how long the population has been in the district: https://www.rhnet.org/Page/207 (Lee, Warfield, Southall, Thompson, Mayo, Bullard and Norwood)

The west side of Durham in unincorporated Orange County to the north of Chapel Hill will give you the lower density/rural feel with good schools, yet still with diverse demographics.

In case it became lost in the wave of link-heavy posts, I thought it could be good to repeat..
