Right now we're living in Albany which has decent public schools. I'm spending my 2L summer at a firm in Menlo Park and hope to receive a permanent offer from them. I've tried just googling, but am not finding a great reference. Of those areas surrounding Menlo Park, which has decent public schools? Or does anyone know of a website that evaluates public schools?

Palo Alto has the best public schools in the area and is right next door.

It's also a pretty expensive town to live in.

Menlo Park itself has great public schools as well.

You may want to also check out San Carlos school district. Redwood City's school district isn't great overall, but there are a few good options if you are in that district - Adelante is a Spanish immersion school that I have heard great things about and there is a "gifted" school that kids have to test to get into (Roy Cloud, maybe) that I have heard mixed things about - all agree it is very strong academically, but maybe too competitive, etc. In San Mateo/Foster City is another school district that is mixed overall, but has a couple of schools that I always hear great things about - Baywood and is one of them.

greatschools.net is a good starting point. It gives you the scores and ratings as well as parent reviews.
