Your best bet will be in Berryessa around Trade Zone.
The API scores are over 900 and you get newer Town Homes.
Let me know if I can help.
You should take a look at the STAR test results. If the link doesn't break you can go to:
You can search for test results from (which gave the above link):
I recently bought a home for a family with their desired excellent school. They never would have found it because it was not in the city limits they had specified and the price was lower than what they thought they would have to pay.

After you find your home you will still have to make a purchase offer the seller will accept. Purchasing a home is not the same as buying something off of a grocery store shelf. It involves people and agreements between people. Some offers are more credible than others. Some people are more credible than others. Some people can find out how to make the buyer's offer more attractive at a lower cost. Experience makes a big difference ... just like it does with something simple like baseball.

I understand that I can easily get API scores for most schools on google. However, my question is a little different.
Don Callejon is a school that has both, elementary and middle school grades (i.e. school goes K-8 grades). Their overall API scores last year were 868. However, this score includes all grades. I am mainly looking at how the school fared in the elementary grades (K-5 grades) only - not including middle school grades.
Greatschools.org Gives rating details where they rate grades 2,3,4,5 as "10" (http://www.greatschools.org/california/santa-clara/16956-Don ) - does this mean that the school's elemtary API was >900?
To answer your question, a simple google search with the school name and API following it, such as; "Don Callejon Elementry School API" will pull the information you seek.

I define excellent elementary school as one with 900+ API. I understand that API is not everything, but I do see it as a very important number.
Finally, I am looking at a townhome that has atleast 2bd and 2ba (1.5ba not OK).
Thanks for the answers in advance.
