San Clemente has some great schools for your family! I, too, have kids - 2 at the high school, 1 in middle school, and 1 in elementary. San Clemente High School offers the International Baccalaureate program as well as a broad AP program of classes. They also have terrific sports and drama programs. I have had kids at both Vista Del Mar Middle School and Bernice Ayers Middle School - both are absolutely terrific schools where we have had very good success with my kids. Shorecliffs is the 3rd middle school in San Clemente and is also great - in particular, if your child is a surfer, they have a really good surf team there as well.
Some great areas in San Clemente for your family would be Rancho San Clemente, Talega, Forster Ranch, and Marblehead. I offer all of my clients a personalized property search web-page which notifies them of new properties and price reductions as well. It is a great way to preview properties from your own home, on your time, and keep track of favorites, etc. I would be happy to talk with you further about your questions and/or set you up on a personal search of your own. Please call or e-mail me at your convenience!
Good luck to you - let me know if I can help!
