Los Altos (Spanish for "the heights") is a city at the southern end of the San Francisco Peninsula, in the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Clara County. The population was 28,976 according to the 2010 census. Most of the city's growth occurred between 1950 and 1980. Originally an agricultural town with many summer cottages and apricot orchards, Los Altos is now an affluent bedroom community. Los Altos has several distinctive features. Commercial zones are strictly limited to the downtown area and small shopping and office parks lining Foothill Expressway and El Camino Real. Because of it's small town charm, Los Altos is often referred to as the real-life version of Mayberry R.F.D., setting for the American television series The Andy Griffith Show (on CBS Network from 1968–1971.)
The Los Altos School District has one of the highest average API scores in California and includes seven elementary schools in the Los Altos–Mountain View area. Los Altos is also served by highly regarded private and religious schools such as St. Nicholas School, St. Simon School, Miramonte Elementary School, (JrK-8th) Canterbury Christian School (K-6th), Pinewood School, The School for Independent Learners and Waldorf School of the Peninsula.
