The popularity of the Cupertino school district and Fremont school district has priced out many potential home buyers who wanted to buy a home in the neighborhoods with strong schools. Even now when home prices are falling across Bay Area, Cupertino homes are still not affordable and there are not foreclosure homes in Cupertino. There is hope, not every home buyers is aware that attendance area of desirable Cupertino school district (elementary and middle schools) and boundaries of Fremont High school district (high schools) includes not only the city of Cupertino, but parts of West San Jose, Sunnyvale, Saratoga, Santa Clara, and Los Altos. One of the approaches would be to include in the home search range not only Cupertino zip code 95014, but Sunnyvale zip code 94087, San Jose zip code 95129 and 95117, Santa Clara zip code 95050 and 95051. For detailed district borders one should check with school districts maps. One more way to get to Cupertino high schools is to buy house in the attendance area of best Sunnyvale school district elementary and middle schools, but with the high schools in Fremont High school district.
