Hi Js,

Before you buy a home in any subdivision, you should check if there is a waiting list in Fremont especially all the "good schools". For example Forest park school has a waiting list in the triple digits.

The school has the right to send your kid to any of the schools they want if they school is overcrowded. So it will help if you find out right away and if they have a waiting list, add your name. Maybe by the time your KB townhome at Kato is ready, your child's turn may also come in the school.

If I can help in any way please call me at 510-279-9580

i also called since I am considering buying in Castilleja. The current school is James Leitch /Warm Springs, and buying a new home vs old home makes no difference for overload status, so buying at Mayfield or any other Warm Springs home will not guarantee a spot at Leitch/ Warm Springs, so Castilleja is looking much more attractive than the Mayfield homes that Nicole posted since they are more expensive!

Bobby, yes, if your kid's grade is not overloaded. Good luck on that.

Sorry, you kid is more than likely going to Grimmer instead. I am surprised that there are still so many uninformed buyers in this market.

Hello JS,

When you booked your name at KB, have you paid any deposit? Please ask KB to give you a letter in their letter head, saying that they have received a deposit from you for such and such Track and Lot number. Your estimated close of escrow date upon completion of the building and finals. You will the owner, occupying the home after the deliver of the possession. This letter should be good enough for school to register your child's name in the school. So even if there is a waiting list, you make sure your child’s name is in the raw (line) and not left out until the later date when you get possessions of the house.

You can visit the School website for more information.

If you have anymore questions, please feel free to call me at 510-381-2105
Or e-mail me at

Good luck to you,
