"It’s a nice community. People do look out for each other. Some negatives like any neighborhood... but the positives easily outweigh these, which are mostly simply about living in any urban area... we have issues, we know, we care and we try our best to improve. "

"We just moved here and we love it! Beautiful scenery, friendly neighbors and conveniently located to Downtown, Rockridge, Montclair, and Berkeley. We couldn’t be happier. "

"Great neighbors. Beautiful homes. People have lived here 60+ years and mentor the newcomers. We have survived a devastating wildfire and most rebuilt. We are a community. "

"Hillcrest School is amazing and has an extremely strong PTA that raises lots of funds that allow the school to hire about a dozen extra staff. It's an amazing school and community. There are plenty of parks nearby in Montclair, Rockridge, and Lake Temescal. In Oakland, you have many things to do for kids, like the zoo, Fairyland, and much more. Upper Rockridge is a safe neighborhood. Some streets are busier with cars and not every street has a sidewalk, but it's generally a place where young kids are safe to walk around."

"The AC Transit bus that takes you right into the city is very relaxing and often has wifi and comfy seats. You can also drive down to Rockridge and take either BART or casual carpool. These three options make commuting into SF super easy. Commuting to the South Bay is harder because you often have to drive and there's a great deal of traffic."

"Our neighborhood in the Oakland Hills is sunny and quiet but very close to great activities, restaurants, and places to visit. The neighborhood also has an amazing school."

"It's a nice friendly place with great schools. Unfortunately some schools are oversubscribed and getting in is by lottery."

"There are many people with dogs in the neighborhood. Some people walk their dogs at Mountain View Cemetery or in the Redwood Hills or at Lake Temescal. People often walk their dogs in the neighborhood, too. In such a hilly area, it's easy to get a workout in."

"This is a nice quiet neighborhood in the ideal location. It's not a housing tract. It has a diverse population and great schools."

"I moved here with my family five years ago and we love it here. It's a neighborhood with lots of families. Often, older seniors or young families with kids at the local schools (often Hillcrest). We got lucky to find a home here and can't imagine leaving. There's great access to restaurant and stores on College and Montclair. They're building a brand new shopping center on Broadway that we're excited about. There are many parks to visit for kids nearby. And driving to SF is easy. Honestly, though we don't miss SF and head to downtown Oakland if we're ever in need of something more. Commuting into the city is super easy from here. You can take the bus which is very relaxing. Or you can drive down to Bart or casual carpool and leave your car there to head into the city."

"Easy access to top notch services, restaurants and transportation. A gorgeous walking neighborhood with views and established trees. Very friendly neighbors for a sense of community, and a variety of professions and interests brings a cosmopolitan tone. Claremont Pines is on the first hills of Upper Rockridge, adjacent the Claremont Country Club & Golf Course. It is a fantastic blend of North Berkeley, Montclar and Piedmont communities in the best of Rockridge. We need to move, and know we are leaving a rare environment within the Bay Area. "

Our family has been part of the Aurora community since my oldest daughter entered Kindergarten 6 years ago (and our younger daughter is now there as a 2nd grader). We *love* this school!! The staff are universally amazing -- intentional, caring, philosophically aligned (i.e. strong believers in progressive education), passionate about education. The parent community is wonderful as well -- welcoming, full of support for all different kinds of families, loving towards their kids and each other. Classes are small, there is an amazing array of “specialist” classes (art, music, yoga, woodshop, Spanish, P.E., library, computers), and the mixed grade classroom structure is simply magic! (K/1 is combined, as are 2nd/3rd grade, and 4th/5th grade) The younger kids learn from and look up to the older kids, and the older kids get lots of opportunities to practice being kind teachers and leaders. Finally, Aurora has been teaching a strong socio-emotional curriculum since its inception in 1988 -- they are experts at this, and I am always impressed by how much more emotionally aware my kids are as a result of this (they teach actual “tools” to help kids deal with feelings and conflicts with friends -- something I wish more grownups would use!!). Aurora is not exactly geographically close to us, but it has been an incredibly wonderful experience for our family -- totally worth the commute!In terms of academic rigor, I think Aurora *is* academically rigorous, but in a way that makes more sense than requiring lots of rote memorization. Kids work hard on learning material, but the scope and approach is a little different than traditional schools, which emphasize memorizing lots of disparate facts. One of Aurora's philosophies is to delve deeply into a smaller area (as opposed to learning a shallow amount of a larger area). In this day and age of being able to learn shallow amounts of anything with a quick Google search, I appreciate this more meaningful skill of being able to learn to research something more deeply.
