Cambrian Park Reviews

2
Cambrian Park is a pleasant suburban community in San Jose. Located within driving distance of several malls and shopping centers, it is a great place to live. Although the appearance of different residences may vary, most people are kind and polite, and, if you get to know your neighbors, you will find many of them to be wonderful people. The main school districts provide decent education, as recent bond measures have provided tax dollars specifically for the school districts. However, the local schools are about average in the academic rigor and achievement when compared to other regional districts. Commutes will be slow unless you are lucky enough to counter-commute. The area has many great parks and sources of entertainment are easy to come by so long as you have a car--public transportation is inefficient and expensive. If you do choose to live in Cambrian Park, you will definitely enjoy it, especially because of the temperate Bay Area climate.

As a Mexican girl in Cambrian Park, I felt out of place. Since it is a neighborhood in California, it is supposed to be inclusive, but all I ever felt was that I was unwelcome. I had friends who only pointed out my ethnicity when I was with them, and sometimes teachers who doubted my potential. It wasn't entirely bad, though. I had friends who never made me feel bad about my background and more teachers who gave me more opportunities to achieve greater things. The right thing everyone could have done was to be aware of their implicit biases.
