Saratoga is a small-town residential community with a population of approximately 30,000. From a frontier town to an industrial settlement, from a village of fruit orchards to a residential city, Saratoga has continually evolved over its colorful 160 years of history.
Located on the western edge of the Silicon Valley, Saratoga is known locally for its suburban small-town feel, wineries, and high-end restaurants. Named the most expensive suburb in California in 2010, Saratoga is home to some beautiful neighborhoods, such as Brookview and Pride's Crossing in the north, Blue Hills and Greenbrier in the northwest area, and Congress Springs in the southwest corner. Elite private schools also call Saratoga "home", which includes Challenger School, Saint Andrew's School, and Sacred Heart School.
