Well, Pureox, I wasn't joking about Riverside. It's been a nice, comfortable place to raise our children.

Becky, you mentioned Perris in your March post. (Sorry I've been away from here for awhile!)

I wouldn't move to Perris, California. It has a lot of crime and it's rather rural. Some parts are okay as far as tracts go but the shopping areas aren't nice from what I've seen. It's kind of 'in the middle of nowhere', so to speak, and not in a great way.

In fact, I don't know how to put this anyway besides in a blunt way. I know a gal who is here from a very poor third world country and she said she wouldn't move to Perris. So there you are.

That's my take, but it's just mine.

Ok, been awhile since ive posted anything here.... Thanks everyone for the posts. Hubby bought a place in Hysperia and we will be relocating the middle of June. Im a little concerned about the high school there, since there are so many students but i guess she will have to get use to it, it may take a bit going from a less then 1,000 student high school to what the h.s has in hysperia. He said it is a very nice home and got it an an affordable price, well affordable for so cal lol......Thanks again everyone for your help

Definitely stay out of freaking Fontana, which is a very tough former steel town that no decent parent would want to raise his or her kids in. Follow the advice of the folks above. They know what they are talking about. Rancho Cucamonga is your best bet, imho.

Keep in mind, though, that it is going to be very hot, too, but at least you won't have to get up in the morning to dig yourself out of a snow pack like you have to do in Michigan.

Becky, I 've lived in Fontana. A few years ago my husband and me thought that we would buy a house out there . Hey we could get a bigger house out there for less money. We have 4 children and we would go out there at night to check out the neighborhood that we consider. We'd go pass the schools and look at the kids and parents just trying to get a feel of the whole area. Everything seemed ok. So we packed up our family and headed to "Fontucky." Let me give you a brief summary about our 6 months there.
#1 you better love the wind if you plan on moving there , it took our entire back fence down. #2 got to love the summers 100+ temps in summmer easy, air conditioners are a must don't forget your electric bill will be about $200.00 a month in the summer. #3 It was hard for my children to adjust to a new school. There was a group of girls that would make a 2 sided line that my daughter would have to walk through every day. I didn't realize it until one day she grabbed the car handle and begged me not to send her there. Just because kids aren't allowed to dress in gang attire doesn't mean that there are no gangs. Don't be fooled! My husbands commute was 2 hours each way to orange county so get ready for a lot of alone time with the kids. #4 Someones car broke down outside our house they came to my house and asked to borrow our phone so he could get a lift. I didn't let him in my house but I did let him use my phone. I over heard his conversation he just got out of jail recently. If you ever watch the show "cops" Fontana is on there occassionally. Well, we finally sold our house and moved . We had some last cleaning up to do so we went back to the vacant house and low and behold what did we find inside our house but someone had broke in and was using it to smoke their crack , there were a few pipes on the floor plus they used the toliet ,the water was off so they couldn't flush. We really thought that we did our research, but the more I talk to people the more I realized that we did do our research correctly and the only people that I know that live there were born there. I don't know 1 person who has moved there and stayed. I hope you reconsider a move there. Both our families were only 1 1/2 hours away and we lasted only 6 months.

Default ONLY place in Fontana with kids is North

My husband works in Fontana; we went through the same issues when we moved here...if Rancho Cucamonga (stay North of Baseline, even in Rancho) is too expensive, look in Northern Fontana only. There is a neighborhood called Hunter's Ridge that attends a great Etiwanda school - D.W. Long. There is also a small pocket of other Northern homes in Fontana attending another Etiwanda school (Colony Elem.) Watch out for East and West Heritage Elem. (in Etiwanda district, but in Fontana). There has been gang activity -knives at school and threats- (yes it's true, they bring the colors, hand motions and even the knives down from the older siblings.) in those schools. To be safe do not move south of Baseline Road. A GOOD realtor could help you once you get here. You CAN find something affordable, you may have to give up size and yard. When working with a realtor, decide your area ahead of time and stick to it. Of course you will be offered to see a nicer, cheaper home in a different area - but there's a reason.

The area code 92336 in Fontana has basically all the newer homes... put that into any home search engine and you will find all.
