Lived in Los Gatos for 15 years, and yes it's a desired community but because of the exceptional school system level, the photo is the high school which is the most beautiful one I've ever seen and I've lived all over the states, with the best teaching staff in the country, and its facilities are like a university...

I grew up in Ann Arbor, Mi. Which is a university town and gorgeous. I now live and have for 28 years on Catalina island, in Avalon which is the most mellow in the state, and beautiful... Location, location.
