Hello,
I will be moving to Thousand Oaks, ca next summer. I have a child that will be entering the 7th grade. Can anyone recommend a middle school. I have read some of the various reviews of the different schools and I am a bit confused on which school to send her to.

Also, look at Cal Dept of education data files for API.

I work for the school district, and I can tell you that you really cant go wrong with any of the middle schools / high schools in Thousand Oaks. They are all very good schools. Its not all about the test scores, although many will disagree. What things do you want in a school for your child? The schools that feed into Westlake High are Los Cerritos and Colina, the schools that feed into Thousand Oaks High are Los Cerritos and Redwood, the schools that feed into Newbury Park High are Sequoia, Sycamore Cyn and Redwood.

If you have specific questions, ask!

Thousand Oaks is a great place to live. Life is good here if you like California. I hope you have a good life here. It has it's issues as all places do. But for the most part, it's safe. You can walk around at night, but I wouldn't leave my door unlocked.
There's lots of beauty in nature here...hiking, parks, walking paths, the "gardens", etc. We have the great Civic Arts Plaza activities / shows too.
In the winter, there's an ice skating rink made up for the little kiddies and adults too. Decor is very nice at x-mas. The people are very nice.
It used to be cooler here than it used to be, but if you really like sun and heat, you'll be right at home.
We are near a large mall if you like shopping (who doesn't...right? LOL).
If you like health food stores, there's Lassens and Whole Foods.
There's a 24 hour fitness nearby too.
You can find a lot of conveniences on the roads of: Thousand Oaks Blvd., Moorpark Road, and Hillcrest - to name a few.
Don't worry, if you like to eat out because there's a lot of food places (big variety as well).
Sorry, the school systems here in Cali leave much to be desired.
We are about 45 minutes from Downtown LA and Chinatown (when there's not a lot of traffic).
Anyway, that's all I can think of for now. I hope that helps you out.

And they're almost all chains! Ugh... I have to go to hipster places like Echo Park to find a decent meal. T.O. gets real old real fast.

There are a lot of excellent restaurants on Ventura Boulevard from Woodland Hills to Studio City.

True. Luckily I work right off Ventura and Tampa. I was exaggerating.

LOL...There's a place to eat at every block here, so you can't go hungry.
But seriously I have to agree with you that there are a lot of restaurants on the Boulevard.

(by the way), I love your handle! Very clever in deed.
