Moreland School District is pretty popular... Country Lane, Payne and Easterbrook Discovery appear to have the best scores... go for more info, or go my website for API scores

I have had several buyers move to the west San Jose/Campbell area because of the Moreland school district. It's probably the best buy for the house you can get. As with any district, some schools test better than others. I would go to to get boundaries for the district and each individual school. I would also go to to compare schools within the Moreland district. Please note that the district closed schools and rearranged district boundaries recently due to financial reasons (not that the district is poor, just making it more efficient) and attendence issues. You also can get 2007 API tests scores at… Just scroll down to Moreland school district. Country Lane elementary and Baker Elementary tend to be the preferred schools within the district. Should you have any questions, I lived two blocks from easterbrook elementary for 10 years and am quite familiar with the area and its values. Good Luck!

I had a difficult experience with the administration. They gave me the wrong information and was unresponsive when I tried to get answers and also gave me the run around. My research shows the schools in this district are good but the district office needs to make sure they are giving out correct information. It may not be a big deal to them but our kids are our world and its a big deal to parents.

Moreland is excellent, yet the high school district is not as strong as comparable value homes might enjoy. So typically I don't recommend this neighborhood if someone wants the very best value on price per home/for combo of elementary, middle and high school.

Hi Bina:
Moreland Schools is one of the better schools for k-8. Close to Moreland schools you have two schools from Campbell School Districts (Forest Hill and Marshall Lane) both excellent schools.
Best value for your Money.

Moreland school are rated very well. I find buyers put extra value on homes in Moreland district since most schools are above 850API. This desirability by buyers has maintained the home values in this area in the last couple years where other areas have been hit. Schools are always a great indicator of a solid real estate investment. See below for specifics of each school in Moreland district and feel free to contact me for a custom search or CMA for specifics school boundaries.
Moreland Elementary 3,066 826 B B B B
Elementary Schools
Anderson (Leroy) Elementary 604
Baker (Gussie M.) Elementary 875
Country Lane Elementary 915
Easterbrook Discovery 869
Latimer Elementary 866
Payne (George C.) Elementary 897

Middle Schools
Castro (Elvira) Middle 823

Moreland school district is one the next choices after Cupertino. Also Cambrian Park has highly ranked schools. See to see more information by area. I find this an easier way to find the right neighborhood school and related rank.

Good luck,

Hi Bina,

As a whole the district ranks very well. Anderson ES has been a weak link and scores have been up and down over the past few years. It’s been a struggle to have their performance come up to par with the others. This last rating period (2007) has seen a health increase, but it still lags. Overall the district is great. Students from these schools feed into Campbell Union High School District with Westmont HS roughly serving the western portion and Prospect HS serving the east.

Please visit my website for a link to the API Rankings for all counties in California provided by DataQuest and the California Department of Education.

I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to call email if you have any other questions. I am well versed in this area.
