Hi Seller and Buyer,

Your best source for feedback regarding crime would be to contact your local Police department. They will be able to supply you with the info you need. As far as the schools a great website that you can reference is Good luck!

Hi S&B,

My family has lived in Fremont since the late 1880s (before it was Fremont). Fremont is actually a collection of Townships that formed a city in 1956, so there is a wide array of neighborhoods, which you can see here:

You can also read a bit more about Fremont's various areas here:,_ca

Fremont is like most any cities; that is, there are areas that are better than others. What makes a particular neighborhood "good" is up to the individual to determine.

I do feel Fremont is a good place to raise a family (I suppose I would not have lived here all my life if I felt otherwise). Fremont is also a good place to live from an ongoing employment perspective with easy access to the entire Bay Area and the 580/680 corridor.

Best, Steve

Fremont is an ideal place to raise kids, safe and good schools too. Washington High is a good school.
Having said that you should probably check the elementary schools feeding into Washington High, and check out the ratings.
I've lived in Fremont for over 30 years now, call me if you are comfortable and I'll give you some detailed info.
