Redding, Chico, Yuba City, Red Bluff, yes. Vacaville may be too close to the Bay Area. Sacramento suburbs probably depends. There are a number of them.

My thoughts on schools are that Redding and Chico will have decent schools.

Yuba City, unless it's changed from it's earlier reputation with the spread of the Sacto Suburbs, maybe not. Yuba City's reputation comes from so long ago that it would be unfair of me to repeat it. It just may not be true.

Being a small town, Red Bluff's schools probably suffer from limited curriculum. A broad curriculum is difficult to support on a small population base.

Redding is certainly affordable, however it is a very high crime area. It has an abnormally high number of registered sex offenders as well as being in the top ten cities for violence against women, among the top ten for car thefts and again for growth of crime. On average the City of Redding Police Department takes in 250 reports per day for thefts, robberies, domestic violence, car thefts, arson, drug related incidents, etc, etc. just in the past few weeks we've had a couple of murders as well as attempted murders. For a city the size of 100,000 that is unacceptable. If I were to consider moving this far north I would be looking at Anderson or Cottonwood. They both have schools that I would compare equal to the ones in Redding, if not better. They certainly have lower crime and better law enforcement.
