Monroe Township is going to be cheapest of all the 3 you mentioned, but I don't know of any townhouses that fit your needs. It is mostly 55+ houses or single-family homes $375K+.

There are some townhouses in East Windsor in the Windsor Meadows subdivision just north of Hightstown.
East Windsor, NJ Real Estate and East Windsor, NJ Homes For Sale
Be sure to get a townhouse with a basement. Those without have the furnace in the attic. Very inefficient.
I looked there before buying my house in Monroe Township.

South Brunswick, West Windsor-Plainsboro are pricey.

Would you be ok with condos?

Plainsboro has a lot of condos (2-3 BR) for sale within/below your budget. Not sure when they were built though.
They generally are family friendly with playgrounds or other amenities for leisure.

There is the Montessori Corner which has a campus right behind the Princeton Meadows shopping center which takes kids until kindergarten and another campus (Montessori Country Day) through elementary school.

You can find plenty in you're price range buddy boy. Ignore the asking prices on zillow etc, theres over supply of townhomes in all NJ especially 2 BR no one wants them everyones trying to sell em. You see a townhome out there for $420k offer $350K and you'll get a surprise.

East Windsor does not meet the "good school district" requirement the OP specified.
