I live in South Corona in the Sycamore Creek area and my wife and I have three kids, one in Kindergarten, one in Jr. High and one just off to college...

We absolutely LOVE this area and have found our schools in the area to be amazing and our neighborhood is extremely safe and really kid friendly. (We have about 10 kids a day running through our house playing with our children.)

The kids love it too....

A good family friendly neighborhood is so important! Great questions.

South Corona is one of our most desired areas. Built largely in the 90's on what was previously orange groves, it has a variety of relatively newer homes framed in a beautiful background of foothills and distant mountains. It is also a low crime area with many parks, playgrounds and places of worship.

Sadly, our world is becoming a more dangerous place and the days of letting our young children take off on their own without a care are long gone. That said, South Corona would be at the top of my list to raise a family.

Our 2 children are now in their early 20s and attending college. They both went to Santiago HS and my son attended Citrus Hills Middle school and Susan B Anthony elementary when it first opened. At that time, Santiago HS and Citrus Hills were the only schools in Corona-Norco that didn't allow intra-district transfers because they were in such demand and filled to capacity. When he attended Susan B Anthony, he had an intra-district transfer and I drove him across town every morning. My daughter was in GATE which was held at Garretson. We moved to Eagle Glen (just south of South Corona), in part, so they could attend Santiago HS.

South Corona is a highly desireable city to live in southern California. It's location is so close to many attractions, jobs, shopping and freeways. I've lived in Corona for 20 years and proud to say we have some of the best schools in the state. Currently the city has 42 city parks, and various shopping centers with big name retailers like Walmart, Target and Costco. Loads of restaurants from various ethnic cultures and priced from low budget to superior fine dining. Drive times vary on freeways, depending on date and time. Corona is a busy city with entertainment and something for everyone. I highly recommend researching the area if you are "worried". Be proactive and research the school district, police department and also city website at:
