The city of Cupertino is a very safe place to raise children compare to other cities in the US. It has plenty of jobs and nationally recognized excellent schools. Most corner of the city is clean and well maintained. During the weekends, you could go to a beach to have a family picnic or a mountain to hike with friends within an hour distance. It is the heart of fast changing high tech world but people have learned to balance to live with the old and the new. They value them both. However it's living cost is getting higher and higher every year.
Cupertino is a town at the center of the Silicon Valley. Although housing is extremely expensive, people with tech jobs in this area earn significantly more than the national average. Cupertino attracts ambitious people from all over the world and public schools in the area are high quality. The average young adult would rate this town boring, but Cupertino is an environment where children can grow up in wholesome households and can become amazing people.
