Hi All,

I'm relocating from Omaha, NE to Southern CA. My job will be in San Bernardino. I'm looking for suggestions to live for a young family, kids are in elementary school. We have an approx. budget of 400k and we're looking for the best place to raise our kids. I'm comfortable with up to an hour commute since I know San Bernardino isn't the best place. School system is the most important. Like everyone else we'd like low crime. We're okay with suburban or rural life. Any help and info is greatly appreciated.

i'd recommend living somewhere along the 15 corridor between corona and fontana. plenty of neighborhoods in this area with reasonable commute times to SB, certainly less than an hour (it is in fact a reverse commute). your budget should get you a nice, newish home with good schools.

Shoot for housing that will put your kids in the Etiwanda School District. (parts of Alta Loma, Cucamonga, N. Fontana).

I agree with Fontucky. Aim for Alta Loma and Rancho Cucamonga.

I would look into Norco. It has that small town feel. And you'll be always going against traffic

Norco has a weak school district. My lady used to teach in the Corona district and she said Norco was definitely the more ghetto end of Corona.

Rancho, Alta Loma, Upland, the "nice" parts of Corona, and maybe Eastvale. I don't know much about Eastvale, but it's new and I believe nice?

There's always Redlands - 5 elementary schools are rated 8, 9, and 10 by greatschools.org

Eastvale is new/nice and built over former cow paddies.

Re: Norco, there is nothing "ghetto" about it, it is "city living in a rural atmosphere". I am a product of both Corona and Norco CNUSD schools until 8th grade (was in the gifted program, was moved from a school in Corona to Norco Elementary {still 7/10 on Great Schools}), Norco Int. is a 5, Norco High is a 7, so what exactly is weak about them?

BTW, Corona and Norco are two distinct cities.

I would look closer to SBD, with Rancho Cucamonga being the furthest west I'd look. Redlands is the most obvious choice IMO.
