Asked by Marin_moving, Orinda, CA • Tue Mar 5, 2013
I need HONEST input on whether Orinda or Lafayette would be better for us. Our top priorities are (1) tight-knit, family-friendly community where kids play with neighbors and grow up with each other (I grew up in Piedmont and my best friends are still my HS friends); (2) excellent schools with high parent involvement, strong funding for continued programs and low student/teacher ratios, motivated kids, and top offerings in terms of AP classes and extracurriculars (drama, arts, science, sports, etc.). Is there a list of colleges attended by recent graduates from these schools?
Our price range is $1.8-$2.5 (we are open to fixer uppers at this point).
I would really appreciate any insight into the differences between Orinda and Lafayette (versus just "you can't go wrong with either" :-) as well as specific neighborhoods that would be best.
