Salida's student population is served by the schools of the community's own school district where there are currently almost 3,000 students enrolled in four elementary schools, one middle school serving sixth to eighth graders, and one high school that is operated by the Modesto City Schools district. For higher education, students have the option of attending Modesto Junior College, California State University-Stanislaus, University of the Pacific, San Joaquin Delta College, Las Positas College, Merced College, or University of California-Merced.
The neighboring city of Modesto offers all the amenities of a metropolitan city from restaurants and shopping to entertainment and recreation. There is rafting on the Stanislaus River, bike trails throughout the area, horseback riding at area ranches, and outdoor in-line skating or skateboarding at Modesto's skate park. Modesto offers the diversity and facilities of a metropolitan city, but still maintains an atmosphere of old-fashioned hospitality. With a population exceeding 180,000, it is the largest city and the seat of Stanislaus County.
