Does anyone know what type of jobs active duty Army soldiers do at Ft Indiantown gap? What is the area like? Where is a good place for my 8 yr old daughter to go to school? Thanks

Northern Lebanon County remains relatively untouched by the level of development seen in surrounding areas, although there are townhouse and single-family subdivisions in the Jonestown area. The nearest shopping would be a few chains near Lebanon or higher level chains (more of the classic box stores like Best Buy) around I-83/US 22 northeast of Harrisburg with a Harrisburg postal address.

Northern Lebanon school district seems to retain a 4-H and longstanding family ties orientation. Palmyra, Lower Dauphin, and Derry Township have more transplants and also more expensive real estate, especially Derry Twp which is more commonly known as Hershey. I'm not as familiar with areas north and east, such as Pine Grove. Derry Twp seems to be highly rated but the vibe is rich doctors kids - the chocolate workers tend to live in cheaper Palmyra which still has many new developments. The belt of territory along US 422 and a couple of miles either side is known for sinkholes. Right near FTIG but still in the valley is shale geology, safer from sinkholes.

Well, isn't jimbo charming?

Our local Cub Scout pack and Boy Scout troop spent a weekend at Fort Indiantown Gap last month and had a blast. They got to do several simulators, hiked, and had a great time. The Gap also hosted about 600 Boy Scouts during the national jamboree this year. They did a live teleconference with the main camping area.

I know that doesn't answer your questions about the area and the schools, but I haven't personally heard anything bad about it.
