The town is built around an award-winning school district. Private school education in Arcadia's public school! While we like the academic challenge provided, there have been concerns about my 6 year old feeling pressure too soon. This is met with innovative resources to support. Kudos! Climate is great, set against picturesque mountains. A place where exotic peacocks roam freely.

The neighborhoods are quiet and safe and the people are nice. Nearby there are many events and things to do. We have a large mall next to a racetrack with seasonal races. The mall has a Dave & Busters, a move theater, a gym and well known and delicious restaurants such as CPK and Woodranch. There are a variety of shops for all ages and interests. The food court also has a variety of foods such as asian, pipster, mexican, mongolian, japanese, italian, america, and much more! And things are constantly changing so there are always new restaurants popping up. Dessert is also abundant here from pop bar to sweet factory to boba! The mall is definitely a main attraction but outside of that, we have an arboretum, many more restaurants on Baldwin Ave. and the Huntington Library is just around the corner. Location is great and its nearby many things to do so you never get bored!
Arcadia is a very safe and pleasant neighborhood. I have lived in maybe 11 different cities before 7th grade, and I can say Arcadia is the best by far. The educational system is very strong and high of ranking. The focus and prioritization of school and education is very relevant here and really enhances your children's capabilities and sense of school academically. One thing I would love to see change is a more emphasis on diversity in the community and neighborhoods. Arcadia is predominantly asian, I believe diversity is extremely important and all the more significant in any society. Cultural diversity is imperative on the grounds that our communities, work environments, and schools progressively comprise of different cultural, racial, and ethnic groups. Learning about other cultures encourages us and helps us comprehend different perspectives within the world in which we live.
