Relo'ing to San Francisco.

Asked by Schoenherr, San Francisco, CA Mon Jan 16, 2012

Husband's job in S. South San Fran. Elementary aged kids. Looking for good schools in affordable area within 30 min commute. Will be looking to rent, as housing is $$$ and the company is willing to pay 2 years. But need to be in an area that we can afford to buy in after that point without moving the kids again.

Millbrae has excellent schools.. San Francisco has great schools but it's competitive and you need to know which are good and which are not.

Hi there -

If you're looking for a more suburban experience, I'd check out Burlingame first - though prices there can get pretty steep if you want to buy in a couple years. May also want to look around San Mateo and possibly Millbrae, if you don't want to venture too far south on the peninsula.

I lived in Burlingame for a year, and both Burlingame and San Mateo have great community/family feels and good schools. Plus, both are close enough to weekend activities in SF and San Jose to be fun for kids.

Good luck!
