My husband is being located to Omaha Nebraska. We are looking for an upper middle class city to live in, we want a good private school to send our 6 year old to. We are looking to spend about $300,000 on a house. We want a SAFE community driven place to live. Can anyone please recommend a place?

Sounds like west Omaha or the Papillion/Bellevue/Sarpy County area will suit you best. $300,000 will buy you a really nice home in the Omaha metro. There are lots of good private schools in the metro, I am not as familar with the elementary level, but there are several on this site that can give you that info.

Agree with previous post - lots of choices.

I really like Papillion, but that's just one of many options.

Any other criteria that might help give some direction?

We are moving to Omaha too, with the same budget. I do not like the suburbs so we were looking in the Dundee area, which is beautiful. I just did a search for registered sex offenders, and there are a lot!!!
The other place we were looking was the Milliard district (they have two Montessori public schools).
For private schools we are considering St. Cecilia Elementary.
I hope it helps you in your search and if someone wants to correct me, please do so.

Thinking about moving to Papillon - the new Shadow Lakes development looks nice.

Shadow Lake is a very nice development.... close to a regional dam site with a great outdoor amphitheatre, hooked up to the trail systems, nice outdoor shopping mall with a little main street for activities (like outdoor concerts every Fri night in the summer), close to good schools, I live in Papillion and love it.

Papillion is a very great suburb to live in. It was voted 7 out of 12 best places to live in the United States. See link:

Best Places to Live 2007 - AOL Money & Finance
The community has really grown over the past year and is continuing to grow. Shadow Lake is the newest development. Papillion is also a great place to raise your kids! I have lived in Nebraska my whole life and I lived in Papillion for about 8 years and you feel very safe.

West Omaha is also considered upper to middle class as far as Omaha is concerned. But it is part of the city, not suburb.

The Dundee area, which is Mid-town, is also upper to middle class but that is considered more of a community inside the city which is probably what your not looking for. Very beautiful old brick houses though.

Hope this helps!!

All suggestions are right on. I'd also consider the Elkhorn area.
