There are now several color-coded, graphic ranking systems that allow home buyers to see at a glance the relative ranking of public schools in Santa Clara County. One of the ones I like the best is School Performance Map (shown above) – the dark indigo color along the western foothills of Santa Clara valley corresponds to high property values.
Another map tool is California School Rankings. Both of these graphic systems are good for getting a quick overview, but most serious buyers know the API score for public elementary, middle and high schools in neighborhoods they are considering or eliminating.
My open house tomorrow is at our Robsheal listing in Willow Glen that has a highly desirable neighborhood and where many families consider sending their kids to Booksin Elementary school or parochial or private schools.
