South Los Altos, Los Altos

south_los_altos

Snuggled into the borders of Mountain View, Sunnyvale and Cupertino, the South Los Altos community stretches between Grant Road and Stevens Creek. Some of the homes are built in the modern, two-story, Mediterranean look, while many are modeled after the classic ranch-style home.

Children in South Los Altos attend either Mountain View-Los Altos Union School District or the Cupertino Union School District, depending on their address. Both district’s public schools are highly rated, but the dual district attendance doesn’t lend itself to neighborhood cohesiveness.

The South Los Altos area does not hold any large events, but neighbors find other ways to get to know one another.

Although South Los Altos is not often the center of community events, it is a central location with access to many larger communities and activities.
