Campbell is well-know for its consistently high ranking schools, with both Campbell Union school unions being some of the best in the Bay Area. True to its roots, Westmont High School is one of the few California schools remaining offering the Future Farmer’s Association, a historic student organization focusing on preparing students for careers in California’s booming agriculture industry.
What It’s Like To Live In Campbell
The Campbell community is mostly outdoor, with families soaking up some California sunshine at the city’s numerous local parks and trails. Both the Campbell community center, a high school purchased by the city that now offers recreation classes and features a track and even a skateboarding park, as well as the Los Gatos Creek trail are local favorites. And if that’s not for you, there’s always a game of pick-up basketball at Campbell Park.
Campbell locals often gather in the city’s historic downtown, recently populated with a variety of restaurants, bars and specialty shops; creating an entertaining experience like none other. The downtown district also plays host to community celebrations year-round and weekly farmer’s markets, retaining the quaint charm of the city’s “small town” origins.
The City of Campbell is centrally located in the Silicon Valley, 50 miles south of San Francisco, and bordered by San Jose, Los Gatos, and Saratoga, and was founded in 1846 by Benjamin Campbell.
