My family and I are thinking of moving to Gorham to be closer to family. This would be a HUGE chage as we've both lived in NJ all our lives. I'm most concerned about the job market and the schools. Our son has a peanut allergy and schools here in NJ are peanut free. Any information you can give me on Gorham, it's schools, supermarkets, restuarants....anything would be a great help. Thanks

Gorham could be a good fit. What type of careers do you have now?

We just bought a house in Gorham. We don't have kids but it has a very good school system. (But that does make the taxes a bit higher than some other communities we looked at). You'd have to call the school regarding peanuts, if they aren't peanut-free, make his lunch.

There is a supermarket in Gorham. There are also good restaurants. It is also close to Portland which has a huge selection of excellent restaurants, and every sort of fast food or family restaurant.

Sounds like you haven't been there - you should really come up for a visit and get a feel for the area!

This is very interesting, as my little 13 month old has an appointment tomorrow with an allergist in Portland right near my office on Baxter Boulevard.

I see that you are the co founder of an allergy group. Did you move to Gorham? I am a parent with a 6 year old child with a sever peanut allergy. I live near Augusta Maine.
