Choosing a location to raise a family involves careful consideration, with quality education, safety, recreational opportunities, and comfortable living being top priorities. Antelope has steadily gained recognition as one of the best places to live outside Sacramento for families. Here’s what makes it stand out:

An Education-Focused Community

In Antelope, education takes center stage. The Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District and the Roseville Joint Union High School District, both serving the Antelope community, are lauded for their academic rigor and comprehensive extracurricular opportunities.

Consistently receiving high marks for academic excellence, Antelope High School boasts a 95% graduation rate, outperforming the national average significantly. Award-winning Antelope Crossing Middle School offers world-class programs (grades 6-8) with a curriculum rich in social-emotional learning, science, technology, engineering, robotics, visual & performing arts, and more.

The area also includes lots of options for elementary education, with superb local schools that include Antelope Meadows Elementary, Olive Grove Elementary, North Country Elementary, Dudley Elementary School, Oak Hill Elementary, and Barret Ranch Elementary.

Don't forget to also checkout the highly-rated (and newly remodeled) local North Highlands-Antelope library. Large, bright, and airy, it offers a great selection of books for kids (including a dedicated room for teens), over 30 computers, and also hosts frequent community activities.

Parks and Recreation - Fun for All Ages
Antelope's green spaces and recreational facilities offer plenty of opportunities for family fun. Antelope Community Park, with its multi- use sports fields, aquatic complex, tennis courts, BBQs, picnic areas and more, provides a diverse array of activities. Gibson Ranch Park, a regional favorite, offers horseback riding, fishing, hiking, and a host of special events throughout the year.
Nearby, you have the Placer Nature Center, which offers educational programs for children, and the Scandia Family Fun Center, perfect for a day of laughter and thrill with its mini-golf courses, batting cages, and arcade games.

Safety and Peace of Mind in Antelope
