Every time I hold an open house in Cupertino school district, I am reminded of what good school scores can do to the popularity of a community. This drives property values dramatically. And even within the hallowed school district are breakdowns between good schools and great depending on their API numbers. I think this view is foolish though. I would rather buy in to the lower scored elementary areas and see better appreciation on my homes value as all the schools rise to approximately the same levels over time. I believe its the family and child with more emphasis on the education than the overall school. Arrogant maybe, but what parent would not believe that?
