Students can be on top of Mt. Baldy skiing in 30 minutes. They can be at the beach in 45 minutes. [View Full Report]

The area outside of Claremont is pretty sparse n and desert-looking, but the mountains are amazing, and one can’t forget about LA, which is only an hour away! [View Full Report]

didn't see much. My son was crazy about the fact you could snow ski and go to the beach in the same day. [View Full Report]

Claremont is a fairly affluent suburb east of L.A. with not much to attract students. Claim is that it's easy to get to LA, but realistically it's about an hour's drive in good traffic. [View Full Report]

Thankfully, Los Angeles is only about an hour away, with all of its attractions and opportunities (as well as the beach!). Outdoor opportunities abound at places like Joshua Tree. [View Full Report]

Claremont is cute, I think. Reminds me of where I live, which was a plus. Could be a little closer to LA but hey, there are the mountains. [View Full Report]

I adore Claremont, but I grew up visiting family there so I am biased. Adorable town - not a crazy fun town. It is wealthy and white but you don't have to go far to find more diverse demographics [View Full Report]

My parents take care of this part. They read the local paper, talked to store employees, looked at the public high school, area churches, etc. and felt that it would be a great place to live. [View Full Report]

A very "small town" feel to it. There was a movie theater, Jamba Juice, a sushi place, Quiznos...everything that anyone ever needs. [View Full Report]
