no schools, except UC Riverside, in the I.E. are good. try Santa Monica Community College or El Camino, fullerton college, long beach city college, pasadena city college, and west los angeles college. In order, the best are SMCC, El Camino, Pasadena, West LA, Fullerton, and LBCC.

is there a certain reason you want the IE and nowhere else in LA

Claremont has quite a few very good colleges, also Azusa Pacific in Glendora. While I don't reccomend Azusa to live in Glendora or San Dimas are great cities

Chafey is a good community college. It depends on what you are wanting to major in.

Please do not let those others tell you there are no good schools in the I.E it is complete bull crap. Chaffey is an excellent community college, it does depend on your major. they have a very good nursing school, and a film and photography department. Riverside Community is probably the best though. They have excellent professors and a good reputation. It also transfers very easily to the University of California at Riverside. UCR is also an excellent school. Some people have mentioned the Claremont Colleges, which are nationally recognized as some of the best schools in the country. They are universities not community colleges. Any work you do at Chaffey is transferable to UCLA, or USC. Fullfill either the IGETC or Breadth requirements, get good grades, and you can transfer anywhere you want. Good luck.

Yes, I'm sick of the hits on the Inland Empire, too! I hear that Crafton Hills Community College here in Yucaipa is good and the housing is reasonable and safe. We lived in Orange County for years and it was no haven from crime. We feel much safer here. Our daughter attended Los Angeles Community College, after several years off finding herself, transferred to Cal State Long Beach, earned 2 bachelors degrees and a master's and just got a fellowship to UCLA for her doctorate work. It all depends on how much you want to apply yourself at any accredited school. Good luck in pursuing your dreams and attaining your goals.

I agree, Inland Empire has much to offer. There is some good advice in these posts about the inland impire. Your majors will vary in some community colleges with their strengths of the curriculum. For the most part check out the coleges yourself and go with what your field of study would be and how you fit in with their classes. Most classes are transferable however, check with a counselor first of you intent to transfer to a university. Community colleges is a great start for getting your general ed classes out of the way, reasonably priced and then on to extend your study. Your choice should be just that.... your choice. I've lived in Los Angeles, I've gone to school in several locations and find that living in the inland empire is by far richer in social ethics. A lesson you'd want your children to learn. Inland Empire can offer much for living and for an excellent education. Good luck with your decision.
