Small Village Atmosphere with Tree-Lined Streets

The seven-square-mile city features small businesses, schools, libraries and churches. Los Altos is a residential community served by seven small retail districts.  It strives to maintain a semi-rural atmosphere. The civic center sits in the middle of an orchard, a remnant of those that once covered the area. The downtown is a triangle with arterials on all sides that enable most through traffic to bypass Main Street.

Scientific Claim to Fame

Los Altos may have a legitimate claim to having the first scientifically designed sound baffle in 1970. Santa Clara County undertook a seminal study to calculate the effects of alternate sound wall designs along Foothill Expressway. The resulting wall brought about the predicted reduction of seven to 10 decibels in noise pollution levels experienced by adjacent homes.

Excellent Public Schools

Los Altos and Mountain View High Schools are consistently ranked in the top 1% of high schools nationally. In the MVLA district, 98 percent of the graduates matriculate to college.
