My niece and nephew attend Carlton. My sister is happy with it. Actually, they were scheduled for Altavista but it was full. However, they love Carlton. I attend most school functions and everyone is great. The area is great too. Sorry, can't be any more help. B.

I have 2 sons and my older one is in the 1st grade at Carlton.
This is our first year there because we moved into our house
last August. We moved because we wanted our children to go to
the Union school district because of the strong community and
schools. I absolutely LOVE his teacher and it's a really good school. Because we're new to the school, I wanted to get involved. I volunteer 3 times a week in my son's class and
this way, I get to know the children and their families. Carlton encourages parent volunteers and yesterday they had
a "Volunteer Tea" thanking everyone that helped this year.
My younger son will be starting Kindergarten in the fall and
it will be nice to have both of them at the same school.
I hope this helps and please feel free to ask me any more questions. Good luck!

I'm a Realtor in LG. All my clients that start out looking in Los Gatos but find it just a little out of reach I point to the Union District. It's wonderful. There's a lot of parent involvement at Carlton, Alta Vista, etc. Everyone I know in those areas are thrilled with their neighborhoods and choice of schools. congrats on the new house. Are you getting the house on Adair? I can introduce you to your neighbors who are great friends of mine. Good luck!!

You can find informaton about the school at: http://dq.cde.ca.gov/dataquest/. This site will have demographics, test scores, etc. You could also arrange for a visit to the school; principals are usually happy to have a family tour to get a "taste" of the school.
