We're prospective buyers looking into buying a home in Pleasanton, in large part because of the great reputation the schools have gotten (we have a 3 year old and a 6 month old).
We've heard from a couple of sources to take caution with homes going to Donlon Elementary. They say there's a distinct odor there due to its proximity to the Wastewater Treatment Plant, and the teachers and children can smell it. The mixed user reviews on greatschools don't give us additional confidence either, but it is ultimately rated a 9.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
