From Day Rd. on the North down along Santa Teresa to Mantelli on the South and everything West has a variety of nice communities. This section also includes Christopher HS and Luigi Aprea Elementary schools (over 800 scores). Sunrise Park is a great park in the middle of this section. You can commute up Santa Teresa to Bernal Rd. and Hwy. 101 or to Hwy 85.

Asking if a commute is bad or not cane very subjective. Only you can judge the commute.
Many good schools in both Gilroy & Morgan Hill, as well as South San Jose.
But buying a home is more than just schools. The price of the house will be the biggest variable for you. Working with a great Realtor will help position you in the areas that will provide the biggest bang for your buck.
