Are you asking about only the 93710 zip code area or are you asking about all of Fresno?

And what are "busintyesses"?

That particular zipcode is located in the north east part of Fresno. You have some real nice neighborhoods located there, especially just south of Herndon Ave, but towards the south end by Fresno St. and Shaw Ave, it is a bit sketchy. Also the "El Dorado" area which is roughly Barstow/Cedar/Shaw and the areas adjacent to it have fairly high crime due to low income housing, gangs in the area, and Fresno State University as well.

Fresno schools are just average, nothing extrordinary.

In that zip code, I'd look at the neighborhoods north and south of Sierra that attend Eaton and McCardle Elementary. Both of those schools top the California test score goal of 800. Robinson Elementary and Wolters in that zip code typically score in the range of 750 to 800.

Here is a boundary map of the schools to help with house hunting.

Fresno Unified has some very good magnet schools if your child can get accepted. For example, Manchester GATE scores a near perfect 986 out of 1000.

On the other hand there exist some poor performing schools in the southern areas of the district.

Other parts of Fresno/Clovis are even nicer than 93710, so if you expand your search you might find easy commutable areas in other zip codes.

I live a couple of zip codes over. 93710 is a mix of older neighborhoods surrounding the university. no shortage of 'ghetto' areas. Fresno schools, in general, are fairly week. You might consider living further north in 93720, 93730 or east in Clovis. North Fresno schools are often part of Clovis Unified and that's a top notch district. As another writer added, there are diamonds in the rough, but you need to know the area much better in order to locate those neighborhoods and schools.
