We will be moving from VA to Sacramento area in summer. Husband will work in Roseville. Looking for excellent elementary/middle school for my son. Would like to rent apt./house for a year or two. Heard Roseville/Rocklin/Folsum are nice areas.

My son will be going into 6th grade and am confused because in some districts, my son would be still attending elementary school for 6th grade and in other areas he would be going to middle school in 6th grade. Our middle schools in VA start in 6th grade. Have no idea what schools would be best and which neighborhoods would be great.

Also, are there any other areas we should look at that wouldn't be too far of a commute for my husband?

Thanks!!

Different districts seperate their elementary / middle schools at different grades. I grew up in Los Angeles and my school district ended elementary at 4th grade.

In general, the districts in all 3 of the cities you mention are very good -- in fact, it's one of the main reasons people choose to live there. You can check out individual district and school statistics on Roseville Schools (Greatschools.net).

Note: Roseville is so big that there are actually 3 elementary districts that serve the city: Roseville City Unified, Dry Creek, and Eureka Union.

As a current resident of Roseville, I would highly recommend to stay away from this area. Roseville and Rocklin are on normal standards considered very nice, clean places, but they lack so much diversity in all aspects (ethnic, income, the houses all look the same too!); the monotony can become draining. Although, Folsom is really nice with excellent schools, great activities for recreation (Old Folsom, Folsom Lake (!!), and great parks and a zoo), great restaurants, etc.

If I were to rank them it would be Folsom, Rocklin, and Roseville. The school systems in Roseville definitely need work..

Also, Roseville is a pretty big town, so the commute really depends on the location of your husband's job. Despite, everything I had mentioned about Folsom, it is the furthest of the bunch (but not by a lot)

I am partial to the San Juan Unified School District, honestly. I love Roseville, but wouldn't move my family there.
