In Almaden valley, I see some houses on a street assigned to one middle school and other houses on that same street assigned to a different middle

school. The pricing of the houses also differ a bit based on the assigned schools. Is this pretty common in Almaden area. Is there a possibility that these houses will be the first to be affected if there is re-zoning of school lines?

Hello Rr, this is common in all areas, not just San Jose. Keep in mind that just because the address feeds to a certain school does not guarantee enrollment in that school. This is due to maximum enrollment issues. Before purchasing a home based on school feed, it is always best to call the district office to ensure the feed school is not full (and write down the name of whom you speak with), otherwise, you may be appointed to another school nearby. Here are some resources for you:

Hi Rr,
You're right, many buyers are eager to pay a little more to get their children into preferred schools. The boundaries in Almaden have not varied in recent years and I know of no plans to change in the future. Certainly, the boundaries are set for the 2010-2011 school year as the registration period is now open. You can check at the SJUSD enrollment center on Pearl, near Branham, or call the district office at 408-535-6231.
Regardless of boundaries, be aware that classes fill up before the semester starts. Even if you are in the right neighborhood, if you wait to long to register you may end up with an alternate school assignment and be put on a waiting list for the local school.
If you need help finding the right home with the right schools in Almaden Valley, feel free to contact me.

Good luck,
