The Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District is located in Northern California and serves the family-oriented, suburban areas of Roseville, Antelope, and Dry Creek, a Placer County Community. Located within 20 miles of downtown Sacramento and around 100 miles from Northern California jewels such as San Francisco, Napa Valley, and Lake Tahoe, our area offers an abundance of recreational activities and one of the most pleasant climates in the country.
Beginning as a one room school house in 1876, Dry Creek has now grown to serve over 6,500 students on their nine award-winning campuses.
CITY OF ROSEVILLE
Roseville is once again named one of the best places to live in the United States, ranking 45th by Money.com in its 2020 survey. Roseville is the only California city in the rankings.
High paying jobs, vast retail opportunities, and the reliability and low cost of our city owned utilities are among the reasons for Roseville’s high ranking.
To create Money’s Best Places to Live ranking this year, they looked at cities and towns with a population of at least 25,000 and removed any with: more than double the national crime rate; a median income level lower than 85% of its state’s median; or little to no ethnic diversity. This yielded a list of 1,890 places.
To narrow the list, Money.com considered data about economic factors, like employment opportunities, as well as housing, cost of living, diversity, health and safety, education, weather and lifestyle, and amenities – both for safety and entertainment.
The team of reporters then researched every location to ensure that the statistics were a true representation of each place, and that other negative factors weren’t at play. They also incorporated filters to flag cities that fell short of our standards in a few key areas: unemployment (measured on a county-wide basis) and housing distress as a result of COVID-19 economic disruptions; and diversity as a means to account for representation and segregation.

In the late 1800s, Antelope was the only significant settlement in the Center Township, an area bounded on the North by the Placer county line, on the East by what is now Sunrise Blvd., on the South by the American River, and on the West by the line along 20th St in Rio Linda south to Ethan Way in the Arden-Arcade area. The population of the entire township in 1880 was about 400 people. Many of the railroad workers made their homes here and eventually stayed permanently. Gradually, workers left the area and Antelope became just another small community with little business.
On April 28, 1973, Antelope consisted of a post office, general store and a half-dozen homes. However, at 8:03 a.m., a rail car loaded with aircraft bombs exploded in the southern part of the Southern Pacific's Roseville Yard, destroying the general store and damaging most of the homes. This event changed Antelope forever - it basically was blown away.
What is known as Antelope today mostly began as a planned community in the late 1980s. It consisted of mainly single-family homes and apartments. Due to the relative newness of the community, most homes are new and the area is well planned out. The proposed and ultimate closure of nearby McClellan Air Force Base between the years 1993-2001 did have a slowing-down economic impact upon this area (the “North Watt Avenue corridor”). Antelope received its own postmark and recognition as a community by the U.S. Postal Service on 1 July 1994.

Sacramento, the capital of California, has been a leading agricultural and transportation center for most of its history. In the past 15 years, as costs have escalated in California’s coastal cities, thousands have migrated to the area for its reduced cost of living and proximity to San Francisco and Lake Tahoe. Now, as a result, growth and traffic issues have become top-of-mind issues for the area. Downtown Sacramento is pleasant and attractive but somewhat lacking in entertainment and activities (aside from restored historic “Old Sacramento” riverfront downtown area). Most recent growth has occurred to the north, northeast, and south as typical California sprawl- freeways, strip malls, and endless developments of tightly packed homes. Job growth projections remain strong.
The Sacramento area has a broad variety of recreational opportunities including water and mountain sports. Excellent skiing and many other recreational opportunities are a moderate day trip away. Professional sports teams, such as the NBA Kings, add to recreation and the overall economy, and the arts and culture scene is on the upswing.
The climate through most of the year is an advantage, although summers can be uncomfortably hot. The Cost of Living Index is high for what’s available and is increasing. While growth is an issue, the area is more family friendly than most California cities and does have several attractive family neighborhoods.
At Sacramento, located along the banks of the Sacramento River, the Central Valley is approximately 50 miles wide. The terrain is completely flat. A few miles to the east, rolling terrain rises gradually to the 8,000-foot to 10,000-foot Sierra Nevada crest. Local natural vegetation is grassland; deciduous trees have been planted in the inhabited area. The Mediterranean Central Valley climate is mild with abundant sunshine most of the year. Summer is dry with warm to hot afternoons and mostly mild nights. “Delta breezes” from the Bay Area cool the region. Most rain falls from November through March. Heavy snowfall and torrential winter rains fall on the western Sierra slopes and may produce flood conditions along the Sacramento River and its tributaries. Winter brings sometimes heavy and persistent ground fog.
