Did you know that Benicia has wonderful schools and for some people who desire to work in San Francisco, but cannot afford to live there Benicia is commutable? The Vallejo Ferry is 20 minutes, or you can drive in around 2 hours. That does seem long, but if many people were not willing to do that traffic times would be shorter. Without traffic, driving to San Francisco is between 40 min to 1 hour and driving to Napa is between 35 and 50 minutes.
We live here, work here and love our community. It’s made up of amazing neighborhoods, each offering residents a unique lifestyle. With parks, shops, restaurants, culture, festivals and more, neighborhoods that have a little something for everyone.

I cannot say enough good things about Benicia High School. What I can say is that on some Friday mornings the Principal Brianna Kleinschmidt holds a parent forum where she either has a topic, or it’s open and us, parents can ask questions and raise concerns directly with her.
My family moved here for the schools. Great Schools ranks Benicia Unified schools independently the range is 8 to 5. Niche rates Benicia Unified as a B-. School Digger‘s has a ranking of 260th of 856. I think these tools are helpful for a family looking for a home in the SF Bay Area and Wine Country to use to find a community to move to. They offer demographics and numbers that you can independently rank to your own values.
