HI Bayarea777

Mount Eden is a beautiful area of Saratoga. I have friends that live very near to the Mount Eden winery and wouldn't live anywhere else. As a Saratoga resident myself, I may be a bit bias in saying that overall the city is a great place to live. What time of day would you be communting and to where?

Residents of the area will either use Big Basin/Congress Springs or Pierce Road and I have not found either to be difficult to navigate. Which school(s) would you need to commute to? The area around Redwood Middle School can experience a great deal of congestion because it so near to the Library, St. Andrews, and West Valley Community College. The high school and Saratoga Elementary would have moderate traffic in my opinion. Since traffic tolerance is so subjective, I would suggest that you try making the drive during the high traffic hours.

All of Saratoga schools far exceed the state goal of 800 for the average API (academic performance index) which may make it worth the commute. Los Gatos-Saratoga High School district just reported that their API score ranking was #1 with a score of 897.

Let me know what type of tipes you were hoping to discover and I would gladly provide you with more detail.
