The new API scores have just been released and the good news is that Santa Clara and San Mateo counties have 13 of the state's top 15 elementary schools, and 10 of the top 25 middle schools are in the South Bay as well! The three top elementary schools based on the state's Academic Performance Index are Milliken in Santa Clara, and Murdock-Portal and Faria, both in the Cupertino Union School District.
Also in the top 15 are three more in Cupertino: Garden Gate, Regnart and Dilworth. Also scoring high are Mission San Jose and John Gomes from Fremont Union. Moreover in San Mateo County the Hillsborough School District has two elementary schools: North Hillsborough and West Hillsborough Elementary. The only other elementary school in San Mateo County is North Star Academy in Redwood City. The other two bay area elementary schools scoring in the top 15 are Bullis Charter in Los Altos Hills and Hoover in Palo Alto.
Whether or not top schools are your main buying criteria, it is always important to choose a school district and schools that have high academic performance records, or more importantly where their scores are consistently improving.
