All I know is that it's in San Bernardino County & that's it. What is the city & population like? How about the Colton School District? Thanks a lot.

Colton is right next to the reviled San Bernardino, and not worth bothering with. Check up on Grand Terrace, Loma Linda or Redlands, instead.

Colton is not a place most choose to live in. I would skip it, and look towards Grand Terrace, Riverside, Loma Linda, Redlands, etc.

Good to know, thank you! Anyone else? Actually, I'd possibly be WORKING there in the school system, not living there. I won't ever be in the area after dark, I'm pretty sure on that.

Anyone know if there's a lot of crazies, ghetto people, gangs, drugs, shootings, bums, crime, etc.?

In the downtown part, probably a little. It's like much of San Bernardino.

East of the 215 is better. Kinda lower to lower-middle class suburban.

Will you be working in Colton? Colton Unified includes Colton, Bloomington & Grand Terrace. I had a friend whose spouse’s job returned them to the IE. She made absolutely certain that they bought a house within Grand Terrace...even though it”s adjacent to Colton & within Colton Unified, the Grand Terrace-located schools are better, & GT is safer overall.

Thanks! East of the 215 is even farther from me, but I guess I'd rather go a little bit farther as long as it's safer.

I wasn't told what work site I'd be at, but the chances of being in the Grand Terrace area are probably very slim to non-existent. Being the newbie employee, like w/ most jobs, they're going to assign me one of the roughest, toughest, worst sites I'm sure.

Any other comments?
