What is your question? How well will your kids adjust to someplace new?

Sunnyvale, Cupertino, and West San Jose are all nice, safe area's with good schools. It's just a matter of demographics with Cupertino being predominantly Chinese and West San Jose and Sunnyvale a bit more diverse.

Yes, all good areas. Homestead Highschool is a great highschool. It's right on the Cupertino/Sunnyvale border. Miller Jr. High in West SJ and Lynbrook Highschool in West SJ are also good.

West San Jose is a decent place to live. I like the location. Having hwy 85 & 17 close and being near other desirable cities.
You have Westgate Mall, a movie theater, and restaurants/quick food places as nearby amenities.

Prospect and Lynbrook are both considered fairly good high schools, I believe.

Prospect High not so much. It has a lot of Hispanic, and fewer Asian students, particularly Chinese and East Indian, which is why they get thoroughly trounced by schools like Lynbrook on test scores. This is also why many parents in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills send their kids to private schools - Los Altos High draws a lot of Hispanic students from Mountain View, and that means having to deal with a disruptive, low-achieving student population.

I can assist you with help to make the transition easier. If API scores are important to you I can send the report for the County so you can compare them. All of these areas offer compelling reasons to live there it's more a matter of finding the tight fit for you.

Thanks for the replies.

Where can I get a report from the school district or a different comparison ? JustCall, Please let me know, where I can get a report of a school. If I want to compare against say Marquette High school in St. louis missouri ? How to go about the same ?
