You should think about Cherry Hill in NJ. I haven't heard of parents having to deal with their kids constantly being picked on in school(probably the biggest source of angst for Indian parents in this country), the schools are great, it's close to Philly, and they have a temple in town.

I think Edison, NJ has one of the largest Indian communities on the east coast. I believe I've read that and much of my family through marriage lived there or in the surrounding areas.

Millbourne seems to have a lot. Seems like I read somewhere it might have been up to 30-40% were of Asian-Indian ethnicy.

This is an old thread but I was linked to it off the crime thread so oh well.

Millbourne and Upper Darby. Considering Upper Darby is the most diverse school district in the metro outside of Philadelphia or maybe Camden, I doubt any South-Asian kid will have problems there that are related to his or her ethnicity. And there are real communities of South-Asians there, not just a bunch being forced to fit into a majorly white-influenced area.

Upper Darby - Melting Pot of East Indians (Malu, Desi, Tamil, etc.)
Lansdale - Guju nation

Default Where is an Indian population in the suburbs of Philly with excellent school districts?

We are an Indian family with 2 kids interested in moving to the suburbs of philly. What I am looking for is:
1. Great school district
2. home in the range of 300K - 400K
3.Good size of Indian population
4.easy access to airport ( train stations will also work)
5.activities for kids

Please suggest. Also just curious what is the Indian population like in the Central Bucks School district?

Yes, we did move. It took us a while to make the move, but we are enjoying it here.

There is no suburb in the Philadelphia metro (at least on the Penn side, and probably none on the NJ side either) with say 50% Asian kids in a particular school.
