Town and City Boundaries in Silicon Valley vs School District Boundaries

In Silicon Valley, or Santa Clara County, we have a relationship between city or town boundaries and school district boundaries that is unusual compared to most parts of the country. They just don’t always line up!

I blogged about this at my Live in Los Gatos blog awhile ago and thought this would be helpful information here for anyone relocating to SIlicon Valley:

So if you are thinking of moving to the Santa Clara Valley, it’s a good idea to get a school district boundary map in hand. Even if you don’t have kids, it’s important to understand that schools drive home values – so it matters to you whether or not you have children!

Thinking of Relocating to Silicon Valley?

If you’re thinking of moving to the San Jose area, or Silicon Valley, you probably have a lot of questions:

  1. What’s the climate like?
  2. How’s the crime?
  3. Are people friendly?
  4. Is there anything fun and interesting to do?
  5. What is the local culture?
  6. Could I be happy there?
  7. How is the cost of living?
  8. Are the schools good?

This blog will attempt to help with these kinds of questions – and others. I invite you to email me your questions and concerns so they can be addressed here!
