The City of Glendora, CA, known by residents as the “Pride of the Foothills”, is an affluent city with a variety of housing architectures, consistently high-ranking schools, and low crime rates. It is located about 23 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley, bordered on the west by Azusa and the east by San Dimas.
The city’s history is reflected in the wide range of home styles found in Glendora such as Queen Anne, Folk Victorians, ranch styles, multi-family complexes, and modern mansions in some of the more expensive neighborhoods like Bluebird Hill, Morgan Ranch, or Hidden Springs. Many professional golfers have played at the Glendora Country Club’s 18-hole “invitation only” golf course.
Years of renovation and investment in the downtown area have resulted in many structures being upgraded into modern commercial buildings, although you can read about the original architecture and layout by reading one of the many historical placards placed along Glendora Ave.
Glendora has a large school system divided into two districts, which are considered to be among the best in the state- they have consistently ranked in the top brackets of performance and most schools are designated as California Distinguished Schools. There are 8 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 1 main high school and 2 continuation high schools, as well as 4 private schools (St. Lucy’s Priory all girls college-prep high school,
St. Dorothy Kindergarten through 8th grade boys and girls School, Hope Lutheran Church Preschool through 8th grade boys and girls school, and Foothill Christian Preschool through 8th grade boys and girls school).
Glendora’s list of past and present notable residents include motivational speaker Tony Robbins, Harry Snyder and Esther Snyder (the founders of In-N-Out Burger), and George Dexter Whitcomb, the city’s founder.
