Atherton is located in the heart of Silicon Valley and is considered to be among the wealthiest communities in the United States and is the home to many chief-executive officers, venture capitalists and founders of Silicon Valley’s many high-tech companies. Many of the homes are stately mansions surrounded by manicured tall hedges on an acre lot. Its close proximity to Menlo Park and Palo Alto downtowns makes Atherton a highly desirable place to live for those who value privacy and convenience.

Atherton is covered by Menlo Park and Redwood City school districts. Atherton is also within a close proximity to Sacred Heart and Menlo School.
