We are living in Irvine. I got a job near Universal city. We want to move to some nice place near universal city which is affordable. We checked burbank but it is too expensive. We are considering Glendale. Anybody know which area is good in Glendale. How far it is fron Universal city. Are there any good schools in Glendale. How about transportation? Can we take bus from Glendale.

This is a question for the LA forumers and you're posting in the OC forum. I know both LA and OC and the only advice I can offer you is to consider the Metrolink train. From Irvine you can take the Metrolink to LA Union Station and hop on the red line subway once you're there which drops you off in Universal City. This won't be a short commute by any means, but it might help you stay in Irvine if you wish.

Glendale is part of the Glendale Unified School District, so fortunatly not part of LAUSD. Glendale Unified Schools range from scoring average to excellent. The best schools are in La Crescenta, with the elementary and middle schools that feed into Crescenta Valley High School being a 9/10 or 10/10. These schools are just as good, if not better than Irvine schools. In the city of Glendale itself, the best high school boundaries to live in are for Herbert Hoover Senior High School. Hoover High is rated a respectable 8/10. The API is not particularly strong at 747, which is about average. Irvine High Schools score much higher than this. Glendale Senior High is not high performing so don't move in those boundaries. The best thing to do is contact a good realtor or an expert on the area. The schools in Hoover High boundaries are decent (8/10), but not excellent like Irvine.

South Pasadena, Alhambra, San Gabriel, San Marino, Artesia, and the San Gabriel Valley in general have great schools. Those could be other good options. From South Pasadena you could take the Gold Line to Red Line subway for work.
