Overall, it's a nice place to live. I live in Valencia and it reminds me a lot of Irvine and inland South Orange County. Some people I know would say that is a bad thing, but it's a great place to raise a family.

Our children used to attend a school that was ranked 10/10 according to your ranking. The school was far from that on the inside and actually inadequate. We were lucky enough to find Trinity Classical Academy where real learning happens in a safe and nurturing environment. The desire to learn in my children was almost extinguished by the “800 level school”. Now, I am able to watch them flourish academically, spiritually, and emotionally. Check out their informational meeting and see why Classical Education works. The school is absolutely amazing. I was disappointed to not see our school included in the private school survey.

With regard to neighborhoods in Stevenson Ranch, Valencia, and Saugus: Absolutely wonderful place to rear a family: academically-rigorous schools; vibrant neighborhoods; dynamic Churches; impeccably maintained facilities... truly, a magnificent community!

Good place to live, but leave town during the hot smoggy summer.

Great place to live. Lots to see and do. The downside is the way the traffic signals are programmed which leads to lots of traffic.
