Centrally located in the heart of Southern California between Los Angeles and San Diego, the city of Menifee has become the fastest growing city in southwest Riverside County, and the second fastest in Riverside County. There are a number of reasons why this charming community is so popular, from its year-round mild climate to its great schools and business opportunities. Read on to learn why families are moving to Menifee.

Quality Schools
Good news for families with students: Menifee schools are ranked No. 2 in Academic Achievements in Riverside County. And with more young families moving to Menifee every day, Menifee school districts are adding schools to keep up with Menifee’s growing population. Plans for future schools include five within the city limits, with four elementary schools and one middle school. A new high school is also planned for the area.

A College Town
When the kids have graduated from high school, there’s a great community college within the area. Menifee is home to the fastest growing California Community College, Mt. San Jacinto Community College (MSJC). MSJC has grown 16 percent in the past two years, and is expected to reach 50,000 students within the next eight years. Menifee is proud to be known as a college town. Other local colleges include Brandman University and Bellevue University campuses.

Strong Business Community
