You are making the right decision if you move to Chino Hills. It is an excellent and family oriented community. I myself have lived in Chino Hills since 1990 and have not considered living elsewhere. I can tell you more good points about Chino Hills but I thought it best for you to check out my Chino Hills websites yourself to get a better feel for the area. Go to: and Please feel free to browse around to learn more about the community and to find homes for sale and check prices. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further assistace

North Chino Hills is an older and more stable community and provides easier access to freeways going to the LA county and Orange County. South Chino Hills is a newer community and has a different appeal to other residents. Both areas have excellent schools. There are several Blue Ribbon schools in Chino Hills.

I agree with Joe. Chino Hills was rated one of the top safest cities to live in.,_California

We have wonderful schools, parks, hiking, shopping and close to Orange County, Riverside, and LA.

A Great Place To Be!
Ranked 8th Best Place To Live
Chino Hills is well known for its high quality of life and beautiful rural atmosphere. The community, with its growing population of 75,345, boasts 3,000 acres of publicly-owned open space, 40 parks, 39 miles of trails, and five community buildings.

Chino Hills’ reputation is known in the national arena as well, as it was featured on the list of 87 of America’s hottest towns in the January 2004 issue of Money magazine. Chino Hills was ranked 8th on the list of “best places in the west with a population under 100,000.” The magazine reviewed a decade of data for communities with above average population growth, income, and home prices “to see where people were most willing to devote a high multiple of their annual income to live happily ever after.”

Ranked 13th Safest Place to Live in the United States
Not only is Chino Hills a place where people want to live, it’s also a safe City in which to live. Based on June 2008 FBI statistics, Chino Hills was ranked as the 13th Safest City in the United States.

6th Highest Median Household Income in the Nation
According to the Income, Earnings, and Poverty Data from the 2007 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, Chino Hills ranked 6th in the United States with a Median Household Income of $100,371.

Recreation in Chino Hills
Recreation is a priority in Chino Hills and Big League Dreams Chino Hills Sports Park is definitely a recreation destination! This 33-acre multi-use sports facility attracts tournaments, visitors, and new commercial ventures to Chino Hills. Chino Hills is also home to the McCoy Equestrian & Recreation Center. This beautiful 20-acre facility includes two lighted arenas, covered bleachers, a gazebo, a community building, and trail connections. The McCoy residence has been transformed into a beautiful community facility that is perfect for receptions and small parties.

Attractive to Commercial Developers
Chino Hills’ strong demographics and its location at the convergence of Orange, Riverside, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino Counties make it attractive to commercial developers. The City’s high average household income of $106,825 (in 2006) is second only to the exclusive community of Indian Wells in the Inland Empire. Prominent retailers, like Trader Joe's, H & M, and XXI Forever, have chosen to locate in Chino Hills. Many high-end national retailers have locations in Chino Hills.

Residents Have Attained a High Level of Education
Chino Hills is also home to a professional workforce. Nearly 41.2% of Chino Hills’ adult residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher and the community ranks among the top 17 Southern California cities in its share of residents employed as scientist, professionals, or managers.

Excellent Schools
Our Chino Valley Unified School District schools lead the County in API results. There are 10 elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools in the City of Chino Hills. The District's goal of "Increasing Academic Rigor" has paid off, as evidenced by the following accomplishments:
Seven Chino Hills elementary schools have scored above 900 in API for 2011
Three Chino Hills elementary schools and both middle schools have scored above 800 in API for 2011
Both Chino Hills high schools have scored above 800 in API for 2011
Country Springs Elementary School was designated as a Blue Ribbon School in 2007
Four Chino Hills elementary schools and one middle school have been designated as a California Distinguished School

"One of California's Best Kept Secrets"
Dr. John Husing, an expert on the economics of the Inland Empire, has taken a magnifying glass to the community and considers Chino Hills to be “one of Southern California’s best kept secrets.”

Chino Hills is probably the safest community in San Bernardino County. It consistently has the lowest or close to the lowest crime rate. Schools are very good. Some of the best in the state for elementary.

As far as LGBT, in general Chino Hills is a conservative community. I have never heard of any concerns regarding LGBT.

I call Chino Hills, the Irvine of San Bernardino County. Its a nice place to live.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
