hey, anyone in CA? My Dh works in ontario nd we are looking to move. I want to be in a good school district and offers half ay kindergarten. We are looking in glendora and Claremont...also arcadia and temple city....although thats more of a drive.

any other tips are welcomed....such as alternative schooling methods (I would love to homeschool but DH says no).

Arcadia has some great schools. Their AHS band goes to the Rose Parade and wins national honors regularly.

Glendora is also pretty good.


I'd stay out of Temple City, a lot of gang activity that direction.


Claremont is pretty good but probably the most expensive area on your list.


PS- i grew up in Covina (whivh has ok schooks) and is in the middle of your choices.

You could also check out greatschools.org. They have parent reviews and might help you decide within the cities you're looking at.

thanks :)  My DH and I went to AHS. It was ok. There wasn't a lot of gang activity but there were some people there that used drugs.

My cousins went to Temple City High, I honestly don't know how their experience was.

Thanks for your help :)

You are looking to move to far from me... I'm in the beach cities... But greatschools.org gives you scores and parent testimonials and rankings.... Good luck :)
