moving to Sf bay area

Jump to last reply

forgive me if this has been asked before, but I cant find anything specific to my situation. I recently accepted a job offer at Stanford Hosp ital and Clinics in redwood city,ca. Im moving from Bakersfield, ca to the bay area and know nothing about the area. Im a sibgle parent and I have a highschool freshman and a middle school child, so I need good schools without breaking the bank. What are some good safe areas. my work schedule is 10pm to 930am, so I dont know what traffic will be like. I would love to have things to do not to far away, but we love to travel so not a deal breaker. ive been told Cupertino is a great area. I drove through a part of redwood city and it looked a little run down, plus the schools were average. Schools and safety are top priority..Can anyone give me ideas and a little info about the towns
