Middle school after Montclair Elementary

Hi--I've reviewed some previous posts but am hoping for current recommendations around what middle school(s) to target for my son who just started 5th grade.  He attends Montclair and learns best with a strict teacher and more personal attention.  He is somewhat sensitive and has a bit of trouble making friends because of it but he is inquisitive and can do the work when he applies himself. I have concerns over sending him to Montera and would consider other OUSD schools, charters and private area schools that are at the lower end of the tuition scale.  I have also considered moving to a better district but I work far away and Alameda/South Berkeley would be better than other options unless I move towards Hayward/Fremont.

I would greatly appreciate advice, suggestions and any experience or learnings from the BPN community.  Thank you.
