How is Niles Fremont in terms of school?

Asked by Rajkumar, Ardenwood, Fremont, CA Fri Aug 20, 2010

We are planning to buy a single family house and it seems that Niles and Ardenwood are good areas. Ardenwood is bit costly compared to Niles. Is Niles a good area to buy a single family home ? Are schools good?

Rajkumar,

you can go to Greatschools.net and various other sites that talk about API, and parent satisfaction. However, also investigate whether the school has capacity or is currently diverting potential enrollees. They is no point in buying in Ardenwood, if all you'll be getting is a lottery ticket to send your kids to that school.

Good luck on your future purchase.

Rajkumar:

This link will show you the elementary school scores sorted by API score – as you can see, Niles is ranked #11.

As a neighborhood, Niles is great – it’s quiet and located up against the hills. Niles Canyon Railway connects to Niles and is a wonderful, historical connection to a bye gone era in California. Neighborhoods are tucked out of the way, access to parks is wonderful, including great access to Fremont’s Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area.

If you are looking for good schools and great neighborhoods but don’t want to go to south Fremont, I’d also consider Parkmont and Brookvale.

California Department of Education runs its own efficient system for you to evaluate neighborhood schools. My family are mostly Teachers in the school district and this is what I tell clients to use as well as enjoying the friendly features of GreatSchools..com.

http://www.cde.ca.gov/index.asp is the link to the main website.

Niles Direct Link http://data1.cde.ca.gov/dataquest/DQReports.asp?CDSType=S&am… is the direct link to Niles Elementary School Scores.

Personally, I have lived in Irvington, Mission (graduated from there), , Centerville, & Warm Springs in my 45 years... but I love the Niles area because of its history, semi-private setting, fun activities, and beautiful natural surroundings. Ardenwood is a very clean area and the last of the neighborhoods to be developed in Fremont to date. Check wikipedia and some other online resources to evaluate these neighborhoods. Elementary Schools in Fremont all have good scores. The high school level is different. Niles would have the better school connection there. Best, John

Hi Rajkumar, Hi I am again going to recommend Great schools but the one I use is http://www.greatschools.com
the scores are good at Niles but it's about more then the scores. Since i do not have any children attending there, I would do research. You want to know how the teachers are and the principle. Also it is a good idea to talk to the parents. At great schools they have parent reviews too.
