Torrance, Redondo Beach, temple City, Arcadia, San gabriel, La Cresenta, Burbank, Glendora, San dimas, La verne, Cerritos.

I’m sure many more. Also there’s places with nice houses at half your budget with very good private schools.

Btw nothing wrong with 50 year old houses. In many cases they are better built than the newer houses. Pretty easy to find something nice for much less than your upper budget and have several hundred thousand to fix it up.

Pretty much any place in eastern Ventura County: Simi Valley, Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills (this is technically in LA County but feels like Ventua County.

What is affordable about some of the most expensive real estate in the nation? After the 08 housing bubble popped, San Marino was one of the only zip codes anywhere that prices did not decrease!

San Marino is literally the most expensive city there. As he said there are many good schools in affordable areas there. In places like Alhambra, San Gabriel, Rosemead, Temple City, and Arcadia. All of winch are a good deal for such good schools.

I wouldnít call them affordable, but with OPís price range, the majority of the housing inventory in those cities (with the possible exceptions of Arcadia and small parts of San Gabriel) are affordable to OP.

Forgot to mention Walnut and Rowland Heights also, but depending where OP needs to commute to those might be too far.

My family lived in Arcadia, CA for a year. Trust me, that 10/10 rating is not based on some of the most important factors of schooling. I'm assuming you're not creating little robots who live and breathe for tutors and Ivy League dreams.

"Good schools" is a phrase you have to really research and talk to parents, read reviews online.

I suggest Claremont and Glendora if you're looking for somewhat progressive, liberal and "normal" small towns.
