I would take schools (2 young kids) and commute as my top priorities. I heard towns around 128 corridor have good school in general. I have budget at $600k. Sharon seems to fit my budget pretty well. Westwood is the next. My main concern is the commute of 95 to 93 to quincy. Any recommendations on other towns with good schools and easy commute to Quincy?

Sharon to Quincy is not one of the worse car commutes.
I would consider Canton as well. IT is similar to Westwood. Westwood puts you on 109. I do not like driving Rt. 109.

I am agreeing with n1ey, Westwood also has really high taxes and that 109 can be a bear. (my dad lives there and I visit often).

Quincy is a pretty neat place to live itself. Good luck

For a great commute to Quincy but taking schools into consideration I'd look at Milton, Braintree, or Hingham. You'll be able to afford the most house in Braintree. I'd also consider Cohasset and Scituate. The later 2 are a 20-40 minute ride to quincy depending on traffic if you take 3a but are much more suburban and have good schools.

I agree that Milton would be wonderful though expensive.

Is Needham too far of a commute?

Although I've rented in Quincy for over 8 years, I don't know anything about the status of our schools. A new elementary school (or is it a junior high?) is rising now, with a new high school already functioning.
