In most cases a child will be assigned a school based on the address of the property; however, many cities have adopted a voucher system or "school of choice" option (Redwood City). Also, many schools are impacted and a parent may not be guaranteed the neighborhood school. It is always best to call the school district office to discuss.

Hi there Mei3ling2,

From what I understand (although I am not an expert in these matters) you are able to send your children to schools within the school district in which you live. The property you mentioned in your question is in Sequoia Union School district, which includes the following schools: http://www.trulia.com/school-district/CA-San_Mateo_County/Se…

If however you would like to send your kids to a school outside of that school district, I'd recommend you talk to the School Board to which that preferred school belongs.

I hope that helps,
