The schools range from below average to horrible.

Thanks, OK, so I guess I shouldn't expect too much then. Are you talking crimes/bad occurrences OR the level of the students, such as low test scores, etc. OR BOTH?

Anyone else?

Both. It is a low income area.

Is El Monte a large asian population? How bad can it possibly be? Asian are stereo-typically the ideal students to have.

El Monte is home to a small, low-end Asian community (mostly Vietnamese folks I presume), but is mostly Hispanic like most of LA. It's nothing short of "ghetto", to be honest. Not the best area for schools, especially for White kids.

Why do you presume Vietnamese?

Because in that part of SGV it’s either Chinese or Vietnamese and Chinese aggressively pursue the best schools(Arcadia, Temple City, San Gabriel, Mark Kepler, Alhambra, Rowland Heights, Walnut, Cerritos, Cyprus, Irvine) while Vietnamese are ok with merely average schools(Rosemead, El Monte, Westminster, Garden Grove)

I leased a Prius from BAMA Leasing in El Monte and would go frequently for maintenance. El Monte kinda reminds me of San Fernando...dirty, low income, no real redeeming qualities to speak of

I would not recommend unless you really have no other options
