Thanks Guys. This really helps.

Are there any good middle schools with large number of Indian kids?.

Another question on rentals. Is 2500 $ a good budget for a 3 bedroom house in these neighbourhood ?

You will definitely find something good for $2000 or less.

You cannot really get wrong with either choice...
I'd go further than saying Pleasant Prairie is "closest to Chicago". In many ways, Pleasant Prairie is suburban Chicago.

There are all good recommendations. If you seek a significant Indian population in schools, I'm guessing that your best bet among the recommendations will be Oak Creek and Franklin, as 7-8% of the population is Asian. Indian groceries, restaurants, etc. are in these communities or nearby.

Shorewood has highly acclaimed schools, but the village's overall population is smaller than OC and Franklin, and the Asian population is 5-6% of that figure. There is less access to Indian groceries and such, but there are many other amenities that OC and Franklin do not have.

For more specific info, you may want to contact the schools directly, or perhaps sign up with sites such as this one specifically geared for the area's Indian community:

Milwaukee Indian Community, Milwaukee Desi, Milwaukee, WI Indians

edsg25, not THAT debate again Pleasant Prairie a "suburb" of Chicago... Well either way, have a great day! I spend more time in the Chicago discussions on city-data than I do in my own town of Milwaukee! Good to see a Chicagoan here though!... I grew up on the north side of Milwaukee, but unfortunately it is not the same great area I grew up in (sorry, it just is NOT). when I was married, I lived in Hales Corners for close to 10 years, and I will recommend it. It is safe, clean, the school system is diverse and a quite good school system. Currently I live on the border of the south side of Milwaukee/Greenfield. Greenfield by contrast of the very small Hales Corners is a larger suburb. The school system is fine, and diverse. Cost of housing is less in Greenfield than in hales Corners, overall... WELCOME to the Milwaukee area. Master Jay P.S. I teach Tae Kwon Do, so if you are interested in observing a class, let me know.

thanks guys for guidance. Basis your feedback, i have narrowed down on oak creek, shorewood, franklin and brookfield. while browsing for rentals, i see most of the listed houses are old construction. Are there any areas which are being recently developed (newer construction). I am looking for a 3/4 bedroom house. thanks for the help.

Of the four communities listed, you'll be more likely to find newer construction in Oak Creek and Franklin.
