  • Sunnyvale Elementary School Gap Appears to be Closing

    The gap in performance between schools in the Sunnyvale Elementary school district appears to be closing, based on the recently released latest API results. For many years, we had Cherry Chase #1 and Cumberland #2 both FAR ahead of the rest of Sunnyvale schools in Academic Performance Index (API). Ellis Elementary then emerged as a clear #3 with the remaining schools still far behind.
    However, the latest results show a strong improvement in Bishop Elementary (+25) and good improvement in San Miguel Elementary (+7) while a couple of the top schools Cherry Chase (-11) and Ellis Elementary (-4) dropped slightly. If Bishop Elementary and San Miguel Elementary continue their climb, they will break the 800 API barrier next year. From an investment point of view, you might be wise to buy houses in those two neighborhoods while they are still below the psychological 800 barrier.
    By the same token, now may be the smart time to buy in the Cumberland Elementary neighborhood. Cumberland Elementary looks poised to overtake Cherry Chase as the #1 ranked school in the Sunnyvale School District. If/when that happens, it will be a huge psychological stimulus for Cumberland home prices.

Sunnyvale Home Price Trend in More Detail: Stocklmeir Elementary / Ortega Park Neighborhood – Bittern Drive

April 26, 2010

The median price of Sunnyvale homes from last March to this March showed a yearly price increase of 42%. This seems to indicate an intense heating up of prices in Sunnyvale. However, Sunnyvale neighborhoods vary greatly from one end of Sunnyvale to the other. How do we really know the trend? To answer that, I examined the data from one particular street in the Stocklmeir Elementary / Ortega Park neighborhood. Bittern Drive was a logical choice because it is a long street in the neighborhood, so has a reasonable amount of sales data.

Here is the Chart that shows the price trend.
