VERY well educated at the ORIGINAL Loma Prieta Schhol. We were expected to achieve to the standards of excellence which served us well as we transferred to Los Gatos High School. I was happy there ; that was before the vineyards overtook the area. My house @24170 Loma Prieta Avenue was destroyed in the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989. My grandsons attended Naples Bayside Academy in Long Beach California......that school was in the 98th percentile for the County of Los Angeles AND the State of California. I hope you are achieving similar success educationally.Sincerely. Lillian Strang Verducci (Using my grandson's Email address)
