Gilroy schools

Asked by Lee, Gilroy, CA Mon Nov 10, 2008

We are considering putting an offer on a home in Gilroy. We have 3 children - elementary, middle and high school. Currently we are in Seattle and the kids are in excellent public schools. We have done some research but it is hard to compare WA to CA schools since testing and scores seem to be based on different standards/curriculum. Any advice, personal experience with the schools? We chose Gilroy as we have 5 horses and other pets. It was the only neighbourhood that offered us plenty acreage for our rather large family while sticking to our budget. Thanks. LD

Lee-

A great web site to look at schools by neighborhood is http://www.schoolperformancemaps.com.

I would also highly recommend Wayne Giroux as an excellent choice for representation in Gilroy.

Good luck.

Gilroy has some excellent award winning schools and some that are good and some that are improving. The school district has been on a multi year plan of improvement that seems to be working. There is one high school that is not award winning, though they are in the process of building a new high school at the corner of Santa Teresa and Day Road. All school information is highly available on line including parent feedback and year to year and school to school comparisons. You can go to Great Schools on line or try my web site for a link http://www.giroux.biz . Or my assistant (or your Realtor) can help you find the schools that affect you and reports. In California, individual schools often maintain web sites, and districts (Gilroy Unified) always do. Try here for reports of each school http://gilroy.schoolwisepress.com/home/ . The state produced report cards for every school in the state about two months ago ... maybe a little less. ... Wayne
