Where are the best school districts in northern California? And other "insider" stats?

Am looking to move into the silicon valley / dt corridor. Pretty flexible on location but thinking long term. Any suggestions for where I can find reliable school rankings / community intel? And, specific communities anyone knows about through first hand experience?

Hi,

I agree that greatschools.org is a good place to start. Also try to find out about class sizes, read and interact with parent and teacher blogs if available, and talk to teachers or parents in that area if you have a chance. Also look into what programs a school offers, for example if your child is gifted in music, you may want to research the music offerings of different schools. It may also benefit you to download the school boundary map from my website if you need one.

All the best,

Arpad
