Hi to All,
I am currently seeking to move out of Riverside Cty to a place that has good schools and a high livability factor. I have two teens, one a high school freshman one a community college freshman. Any info on Orange County area high schools and community colleges would be helpful. Oh yes and rents?
I thought that perhaps the city of Orange would be a good locale for us but I just don't know? Any help would be appreciated.

Some parts of Orange are serviced by Villa Park schools, which are supposed to be excellent. Or at least that's what my neighbors say; I dont have kids.

The closest community college is probably Santiago Oaks, but there are several relatively close by, and Fullerton College if your older one goes for years 3 & 4.

In my complex, there is a 2 bedroom condo plus 1 bath (too small?) for rent for $1550. It's a good unit but not glamorous and you can walk most everywhere -- I know the kids all walk to school in the morning, too.

Once you get into Old Town Orange it gets really expensive, but I am not familiar with the going rates for apartments around here.

At this point, if you have kids to send to high school, as someone else said, moving into a district where they can go to Villa Park High is best. Orange High, which is my alma mater, has been subject to changing demographics because of the influx of illegal aliens and so its aggregate test scores aren't very good and crime in that area is far higher than when I lived there in the 1970's. Make sure you stay in the east side of Orange if you just gotta move there. El Modena High has had better scores than Orange High lately, but it has also historically had a gang problem. By no means would I send my kid there.

Better bets, if you can afford them, are Yorba Linda and Anaheim Hills. Canyon High is a very good school. I can't speak for the relatively newer high schools in that general area.

Santa Ana/Rancho Santiago College or whatever its called now is very comfortable to go to and very diverse. So no problem there.
