East Bay Schools

If you are looking for a new home in San Francisco's East Bay Area, there are many decisions you will need to make. One of the most important is choosing a neighborhood. Does the neighborhood fit your lifestyle and what is the neighborhood personality? Will the commute to work be doable? Are there neighborhood fees and/or restrictions? And, very important whether or not you have school-age children — what are the schools like? Good schools are a priority for many homebuyers, and purchasing a home in an East Bay neighborhood that boasts good public schools will help your property maintain its value.

With at least twenty-five school districts, hundreds of public schools, and dozens of private schools, the quality of education in the East Bay is a mixed bag. That being said, many East Bay communities have public schools that rank among the top schools in California and the nation. The East Bay is also home to a large variety of private schools and academies, many with traditional academic curriculum and others with art-based, music, or bilingual focus.

The East Bay is also home to the prestigious University of California - Berkeley, as well as two campuses for California State University - East Bay. Parents of students attending these universities, or one of the numerous private or community colleges in the East Bay, might want to consider purchasing a home for their student to live in during the college years instead of paying for semester after semester of dorm or rental fees. Renting out extra bedrooms helps keep the cash flow in check; and at the end, in addition to a diploma, there is equity in a nice piece of East Bay real estate.
