請問美國Stanford附近小學

先生工作在Menlo Park附近,

今年暑假我和孩子就要過去了。

想請問那附近治安比較好的社區以及小學,

兒子今年要升六年級囉!

時間有點緊迫,謝謝大大們的幫忙,感恩~

謝謝大大的回答 ^^

我們目前的狀況是先生暫時住在公司安排的飯店,

有兩個月的時間可以找房子,所以還沒有確切的住所。

這情況該先找房子再找那學區的學校,

還是依學校再找那學區的房子呢?

    You are confused.

    1. Menlo Park is located in San Mateo County. Stanford University is located near Palo Alto, which is under Santa Clara County.

    Each places have different set of schools.

    2. Enrollment is based on residential address. So it is possible that you end up no way near those places.

    (There are people commuting from different cities of the Bay Area each day to Menlo Park.)

    3. Grade 6 is junior high or middle school. It is no longer primary or elementary school anymore.

    4. Due to the age and bad timing, your son's enrollment will be mostly based on the availability, not your preference.

    (At this moment, all Grade 5 students are already in process of selecting junior high school.)

    It is up to you as money is involved.

    Good places associate with high rent. I can't advise you on how you should choose.

    Also commuting is common in the Bay Area. So it is possible you will end up in a place that you never imagine.

    menlo park 本身就不錯了. 不要往東去East Palo Alto或是往北到Red Wood City. 哪裡房租貴, 哪裡學區就好些.

    小六已經是加州的fist year of middle school. 除非英文很好, 不然他勢必是要念ESL. 只要是大一點的學校都可以. 太好的學校反而會有可能適應上的問題.
