Hello and thanks in advance for reading!


My husband has a job offer in Rockville and we are considering a move from the Lynchburg area in Virginia to the Rockville area. Awe are in our early 40s, Caucasian and have two girls in elementary school. I am a total soccer mom and would love to find an area with a safe and excellent school system, with lots of activities available for the kids (sports, dance, etc).

We could do up to 600K for the right area. Hubby wants to stay outside the beltway and keep the commute to Rockville down to half an hour or so. Any and all advice is most appreciated!!!

You will do fine in the Rockville, North Potomac areas or Gaithersburg. You might locate a school you like on schooldigger or greatschools.org. Then look for property in the area.

I would check out Olney, Kentlands, Germantown. But definately start in Rockville. Why commute 30min when it can be 15?

I agree with the previous statements. Start in Rockville then work your way out. Homes become less expensive the further North you go (away from Bethesda) - Kentlands, Gaithersburg, Olney are all very nice and most of the Montgomery County Schools are good in those areas. Definitely look at School Digger and Great Schools though for more information. The schools in the Walter Johnson School district are very good and our kids currently attend one of the Elementary and one of the Middle Schools there and have done very well.

Its very doable. I would prefer Rockville itself unless you find a better place in the areas mentioned above.
