Question regarding cities near Portland, Oregon.

Hi everyone,

Our little family is planning to move to Oregon. We are looking into buying a house in Sandy, Oregon.

My husband wants to live near forest and City, thus Sandy Oregon seems to gets us somewhere close to the city of Portland. I’m more concerned about schools and unfortunately the schools near by don’t have good ratings.

What other areas that are close to Portland are good neighborhoods and have good schools?

Thank you in advance.
