I am considering moving to LA area. One of the places I am looking into is Fullerton specifically Fisler Elementary boundaries. What are the pro and cons of that area? Thanks

Amerige Heights is a great area of Fullerton. Pros are highly rated schools, close to shopping, relatively close to downtown and good freeway access (5/91). If you looking at the newer construction homes in the area (built in the early 2000s and beyond), you'll have to deal with HOAs and mello roos taxes.

I lived in fullerton went to fisler middle school, but i dont want to recommend living here especially around sunny hills high area. Education being high? No no both fisler and sunny hills have weak education systems especially sunny hills.
All the kids moved into sunny hills from fisler did not go to good universities, most of them end up doing drugs/smoke/weed. Trust me there are bunch of asian thugs in this area, driving cars fast make fun of people walking by. Why move to fullerton? Irvine seems to have clean/ great education systems

Reason we looked at Fisler is because of their high test scores. Both Sunny Hills and Fisler have greatschools ranking of 10.

Irvine is too far from job location.

Asian thugs in Fullerton? Maybe some spoiled brats but hardly thugs in a sense of gansters.

If you're strictly talking about API scores:

1. Sunny Hills - 888
2. Beckman - 886
3. Irvine - 877 & Woodbridge - 877

There is no Woodbury High School. Irvine HS is assigned to residents of Woodbury.

Thanks.

I meant Woodbridge HS.

Apart from API scores, is there a difference in terms of students going to top colleges from these 3 schools?
Sunny Hills, Irvine, Woodbridge and Beckman?
