We just moved back to the Bay Area for work. Initially, we thought we would live in Lamorinda since I was working in Walnut Creek. However, now that we have looked at many homes, we feel that Orinda, Lafayette, and Walnut Creek are too rural for us. OK, so here is where I need your input.... We are still looking for a house. Now, we are thinking about Rockridge. I know that Hillcrest and Chabot are good schools, but what do people do when their kids are high school age. On the district map, the high school assignment for that area is Oakland Tech, and that is very far away. What are the private high schools that are in the area? I know this is a long way from now, but I am planning to buy a house that we will live in at least until the kids go away to college. If it seems like there are no good high school options, I need to know NOW so that we do not consider Rockridge, and we will just live somewhere in Lamorinda and buy a car for the nanny to drive the kids around. We just like Rockridge because it is a walking neighborhood with sidewalks (for strollers) and quaint restaurants and cafes that is easy commute to Walnut Creek (me) and to SF (hubby) by BART. We think the homes in Rockridge suit us better than comparably priced homes in Lamorinda/Walnut Creek.
