There’s also a complex for seniors on West Parr Avenue, too.

Homes for sale in Los Gatos with good schools

Los Gatos High School on Main Street

Los Gatos High School on Main Street

Luckily, all of the elementary and middle schools serving the town of Los Gatos and its many neighborhoods are excellent! All of the public schools are highly regarding for grades K – 8.  This is also true for Monte Sereno, which shares many services with Los Gatos.

The high school level is still quite good, but scores are a little lower.  The three high schools which cover the town are Los Gatos High School (Los Gatos-Saratoga Joint Union High School District), Leigh High School, and Westmont High School (Leigh and Westmont are part of the Campbell Union High School District). If you buy a home in downtown or central Los Gatos, the school of attendance will be Los Gatos High, which has the best scores.  Leigh is the school of attendance for students in the far east end of town, and Westmont for the far west end.  Many home buyers want to purchase property with a specific school or district in mind, and for that reason, the schools are a major driver of home values.

Shopping for Monte Sereno and Los Gatos homes for sale by zip codes

Los Gatos & Monte Sereno homes for sale - sold listing on Elm Park95030 is the area closest to downtown Los Gatos and all of it is in the Los Gatos School District.  95032 has a portion that is in or near downtown, but most of it is the area to the far east, north and west of downtown.  Some of it is in the Los Gatos Union School District, and some isn’t (Moreland or Union School Districts instead). 95033 is actually the Los Gatos Mountains – it has a Los Gatos mailing address but is not part of the town at all (except in spirit!), residents there do not vote in town elections, etc.  Homes for sale in Los Gatos will likely be more expensive if they are in the downtown area, both because buyers appreciate the downtown activities, but also because many want those schools.

Confusing? Yes – but if you have a targeted school in mind, just let me know. I’ll help you to find the right house or condo for your budget and needs.

Los Gatos is a fantastic place to live – it’s a scenic, vibrant community with very active community participation (lots of volunteerism), three different free musical concert series each summer, and awesome culture for a small town (a fantastic museum and big, new library, an art & wine festival each August and much more).  Our parks are exquisite and offer something for everyone – from sailing and paddle boats to playgrounds, carousel and train rides, and a fabulous network of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. If you’ve decided to buy a home in Los Gatos, you’ve made a good decision!
