compare it to the Warm Springs area?

Help the community by answering this question:


The Ardenwood area provides easier commute times to SF and the northern penninsula. Both areas high API scoring elementary schools, but the Irvington high school and Horner Jr. High have higher API scors then Thornton Jr and American High School.

Ardenwood is a tighter community and the two parks assocated with the schools helps foster that community feeling.

If you have any specific concerms, feel free to post here or contact me.

I remember when Ardenwood was just open fields. The schools are good but overcrowed. kids are bused out to nearby schools. The Ardenwood neighborhood is OK if elementry schools and freeway access is important to you.

Good schools in both areas, as has been pointed out.

BART connects Fremont to the East Bay and San Francisco job centers. An additional BART station is planned for Warm Springs. When it is in place in a few years it will be more convenient than the current station.

In general, the homes in Ardenwood tend to be newer and built on smaller lots than many Warm Springs houses.

I agree with both agents comment. I think ardenwood area is good buy for first time buyer.You get newer home for good price compare to other part of Fremont. Ardenwood has good schools and parks. It is close to freeway so easy access to SF and south bay for commute to job.I know few friends who lives there for last 25 years and they are still there.

Hello Sunflower,

Both schools areas are great in the area of housing, jobs, and of course school scores:
Ardenwood Elementary 941 K - 6th
Forest Park Elementary 964 K - 6th
Warm Springs;
James Leitch Elementary 959 K - 2nd
Warm Springs Elementary 936 3rd - 6th

Homes are a little less costly in the Ardenwood area. Easy access to the north Bay Area / S.F. Nice parks, newer homes, good schools and great selection of condos/townhomes/homes.

Good luck,
