Palo Alto is a town full of success. In the hub of Silicon Valley and in the shadow of Stanford University, people all over the world come to make Palo Alto their home. The community is a tight-knit group of people whom come from all different cultural backgrounds, ethnicities and lifestyles. Success, however, comes with a price. The school district, PAUSD, is known as one of the most prominent districts in the state. Academic pressures are high and the pressure to succeed is prominent.

Safety here is really great for families, especially because of the great public schools too. Police are very responsive if you ever have a problem also.
The Palo Alto Police system has a positive effect on the community. They do outreach programs at the local schools quite frequently and make sure all community events run smoothly. Every police officer I've interacted with has been polite and respectful.
