Hi, we are potentially relocating to Mass for work in Raynham. Would be willing to commute up to 45 minutes. We are Asian with two young children, looking for a nice young family oriented suburb with great school and diversity. Convenient location with access to good schools, shopping and restaurants. Our budget on a home is around $700K. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sherborn has among the highest ranking school districts in the state and is within 45 minutes of Raynham. There isn't a lot in town for restaurants besides the Sherborn Inn but it's very close to tons of restaurants in Wellesley and Natick and the new Natick Collection mall.

Westborough might be another good option - Well regarded schools, lots of shopping & restaurants right in town, about 50 min drive to Raynham, plenty of neighborhoods with houses in your price range & more diversity than some of the nearby suburbs. Westborough MA (Massachusetts) ZIP codes, schools, jobs, demographics & more

Another thought is to go northeast from Raynham to Hingham, which is a lovely town with well regarded schools, a sweet town center, a newer shopping center, and easy access to the ocean. Again though, not the most diverse place. Hingham MA (Massachusetts) ZIP codes, schools, jobs, demographics & more

$700K will go pretty far in the Raynham area.

I would say your best bets for good schools and some hope of diversity within a reasonable drive are Sharon and Franklin. Plainville would be another excellent choice for a young family, but is less diverse.
