Yesterday’s solar eclipse brought some really great light to Cascade Canyon in Fairfax. Check out these pictures of the side of our house. Usually this is just a wall of filtered sun, but yesterday we got all these crescents from where the moon was taking out the sun.
Fairfax continues to be one of the more resilient communities in the Marin Real Estate Market. Fairfax enjoyed another bounce-back year in 2010, with 73 single family homes sold, which represents a 12% increase in number of homes sold over 2009, and a whopping 28% increase over the 57 single family homes that sold in the most difficult year of 2008.
The Marin IJ provided a good analysis of the report by school district in an September 13th article, Despite soaring state test scores, schools dogged by federal standards as well as the September 15th article, Academic Performance Index Results: Marks Rise in Marin.
As reported in the IJ, “Overall, Marin schools continued to perform well on the API, a number from 200 to 1,000 that reflects a school’s results on several statewide tests. At least 46 Marin schools reported API scores of 800 or more – the state standard for academic achievement – including every school in the Bolinas-Stinson, Dixie and Tamalpais districts. As many as 25 schools reported scores of 900 or higher, including every school in the Kentfield, Larkspur, Mill Valley, Reed, Ross and Ross Valley districts.”
