Monte Sereno, which means “peaceful mountain”, is an all residential community of approximately 3,400 residents known for its rural character and wooded hillsides as well as its magnificent estates. Because of the city’s beauty, location and superior schools many Silicon Valley executives have chosen Monte Sereno as their home. One of the city’s points of interest includes the home in which American author John Steinbeck wrote “The Grapes of Wrath".

Monte Sereno is located adjacent to Los Gatos, and most of the residents are served by the Los Gatos Union Elementary School District or Saratoga Elementary School Districts. Both districts have top rated schools that regularly place in the upper tiers of the annual school testing results. Students attending high school will either attend Los Gatos High School or Saratoga High School within the Los-Gatos Saratoga Union High School District. A small portion of residents near Bicknell Road fall into the Campbell school districts to the North.
