We are looking at a job in Fremont, but it would mean moving. We have two children, so elementary schools (especially) are very important. We would also like to live in a family-oriented, very safe community. We are hoping to keep the commute under 30 minutes -- if that is possible.

We've been told is a gang issue south of San Leandro & Hayward; and that Fremont's elementary schools are in an over-crowding crisis. I've read that they overload they schools so even if we live in a good school district, our kids could be diverted because we didn't register them early enough. I have also read that Fremont has a lot of racial issues. Are these rumors true?

Does anyone have any suggestions of cities to look at?
Thanks for all the help.

along central ave. and down in the irvington district there is gangs but nothing crazy like you see in the movies and definitely nothing to be worried about your safety.... i grew up in central fremont which is a very nice area... i would say look into the glenmoor area... glenmoor elementary is one of the better elementarys in the city....

no problem... also the reason you may hear about racial issues is because about a yr ago an afghan woman was gunned down for no apparent reason and it was considered a hate crime... and they had a minute men protest against illegal immigration... but fremont is a much better bet then hayward or san leandro....
