Please help!! I'm looking at a job at Cal Poly in Pomona. I'm married, have 2 kids and am from the midwest. How much of a culture shock will it be if we move there? What are the schools like? Where should we look at living? I want safe, safe, safe neighborhoods and good schools.

Phillips Ranch area of Pomona. Nice area, 10 minutes from Cal Poly.

My opinions and observations, of course. As usual, your results may vary.

The city of Pomona is really rundown with a big illegal population. As others have said, Claremont or Phillips Ranch (by the way, is there any brushfire danger in the latter?). Or if you don't mind a longer commute, Diamond Bar.
