Default Anyone in the Hemet area, California?

Looking to move to California. Can anyone give advise on what jobs are in great demand in this area and what the high schools are like? I have an 11 yr old son who is due to start secondary school this Sept.
Anyone in the Hemet, San Jacinto, Temecula area who can advise which is the better area/s to live in?
Would like to hear from anyone who can give any advise. My partner has previously lived in LA and wants to return but hasn't been to the above areas.

I really can't say what it is like to live out there. That said, the "Inland Empire" is economically depressed and has been hit quite hard by the housing slump. Many people would move there for cheap housing while commuting into LA or Orange Counties.

A friend's son and family lives out that way. He is a Sheriff and she is an RN.

Temecula is a beautiful wine growing area.

Hemet is bloody awful. DON'T move there.( Sorry to anyone that lives there this is just my opinion ) . Temecula it's at least 1000 times better than the other two. Temecula has great schools and is really family orientated, great amenities and is very safe, 30 - 40 min drive to beaches if that takes your fancy as well.
