The "Gold Coast" is the north/east coast of Lake Zurich. It is reputed to be sunnier than the other side, so the rents tend to be higher. The poshest bit runs from the edge of the city of Zurich through Zollikon, Kusnacht, Erlenbach and Herrliberg to Meilen. From Uetikon through Maennedorf, Staefa and beyond, it tends to be a little cheaper.
Staefa* is a lovely little town, sitting by the lake (although it's very steep, and some parts are a good half hour walk up a big hill), with a nice collection of shops and restaurants and a regular train service (S7) that runs to Zurich every half hour until quite late in the evening. It is also served by a night service at the weekends, which is handy.
I don't know anything about the public schools in the area, but there is a private bilingual primary school in neighbouring Maennedorf, and more private schools - both bilingual and international - further towards Zurich.
To get an idea of rents, have a look at http://www.homegate.ch/

The relevant train stations for you are likely to be Staefa
; Zurich, Stadelhofen
and Zurich HB
