About the City of Los Altos
Los Altos is a full-service City with a budget of approximately $23 million and a full-time staff of 130 employees. Tree-lined streets and a small village atmosphere characterize Los Altos, which is located in the heart of the Silicon Valley. Just 40 miles south of San Francisco and 17 miles north of San Jose, Los Altos is an upscale residential community served by several small retail areas. Many Silicon Valley executives, managers, and engineers choose to live in this city of almost 28,000 because of its attractive climate, lovely neighborhoods, and charming downtown.

A previous Wall Street Journal article, titled, “The Top 10 Places to Raise Kids” identified Los Altos as the top locale in the entire San Francisco Bay Area for families with children.

The Los Altos School District provides K-8 public education throughout most of the City. It was the top-scoring elementary district in the state based on the 2006 Academic Performance Index Base Report, released March 27, 2007. The community also includes excellent private schools. Foothill College, as well as Stanford, Santa Clara, and San Jose State universities are all within close proximity to Los Altos.

The City has a long tradition of volunteerism, with many residents actively involved in City government and other community organizations. With its picturesque neighborhoods, vibrant downtown and highly-rated schools, Los Altos is one of the premier residential communities on the San Francisco Peninsula and a very desirable place to live and work.
