Can anyone who lives in the rural areas NE of Harrisburg, provide some input on what school system is best up that way?

We are currently living in Palmyra and are discouraged about the price of land/homes, along with the congestion and overdevelopment it seems. While Palmyra seems like a decent quality school district, I am hoping that some area to the NE will offer more reasonable home prices and a sense of community living.

I was looking around the Lewistown, Newport, Selinsgrove areas. I am not sure if Mifflintown is to far for my 60 mile allowable commute to Lemoyne but seemed like a decent area.

Our priorities our:

1. Solid school system.

2. Somewhat rural setting with a nice community setting. House price range is $225k - $300k. (Looking for a couple acres with a mountain view)

3. Nice (up kept) main street area with some nice areas to walk and shop?

4. Commutable within preferably 30-45 miles of Harrisburg City.

We are in an apartment in Palmyra until Sept 2015, but would like to research if this is possible before we fully commit to this area.
