for some reason, the "search" function is blocked at my work?

A friend of mine has a job offer in Hershey and will be relocating there. She has a child in grade 7 and another in grade 4. She wants to know what towns have the best school systems in the area that are short commutes to Hershey (under 30/35 minutes). They're relocating from Connecticut.

They can go to up to somewhere close to 7 figures, if needed. She said that she & her husband were surprised at the cost of some homes they looked at online in Hummelstown and Annville. (They had expected cheaper homes coming from Connecticut, but did not find that.)

They'd prefer a newer home, but on a larger lot (around 1 acre or more?)

Hershey itself has good schools. Coming from CT shouldn't have any trouble finding homes in the mid hundreds...don't know what site she was looking at but "large" homes can be had for under 7 figures! Estate homes might be in the 7 figure ranges.

thanks. They do like big homes. They went on greatschools and were kind of underwhelmed with the overall ratings in the area, though. They might have missed a few towns, however, as they're in the early stages.

Tell them to look on paschoolsperformance.org. More details about socioeconomic climate of district, size of district and PA test score results. PA is a big state, with 500+ school districts.
