We are thrilled to bring you our Moving to Orange County Guide sponsored by Living Well Pregnancy Centers + Germicidal Maids!

Schools in Orange CountyEducation is important for all families. Depending on what you’re looking to gain from a school, there is a range of educational styles in Orange County. From public to private, there is something for everyone.

Keep in mind that if you’re moving to a particular neighborhood just for the schools, typically home prices will reflect a great school district and be higher than their counterparts.

Many cities in Orange County have several elementary schools.  One way to find out which one is right for you is to go tour them!  Being on the campus will help you figure out if you want to pursue placing your child there.  Once you find your school you can begin the process of looking for a home within that district.  You may also want to ask the school what their policy is on inter and out of district transfers.  Many families expand especially during those first few years in preschool/elementary school so finding a bigger house may be on your horizon.

Trust your gut!

There are also so many private elementary and high schools throughout Orange County.  There are schools that are faith-based as well as language immersion schools.

Here is a list of resources to help you find the best school fit for you and your family!
