While high-paying and plentiful tech jobs are fueling buyer demand for Silicon Valley homes, the fact that the region’s public schools consistently rank among the best in the state is also a big draw for families.
That’s according to Niche.com’s annual rankings of the best public-school districts in California. The company gauges school quality using 10 criteria — including academics, teachers, extracurricular activities, and sports — then assigns each school district a grade. Niche.com also factors in parent and student reviews on its website when ranking school districts.
As in last year’s rankings, three Silicon Valley school districts are at the head of the class, all receiving overall A-plus grades.
