Hello Teck, there are currently as of 3-6-15 only three condo units available under 300k and the HOA fees are $299, $325 and $406 and they are all only 1bd 1ba condo's in Sherman Oaks. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.
You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.
You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment Access program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.
It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify and go over rates and terms of loan program choices depending on your qualifications. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

As for middle schools there is: Sherman Oaks Ivy Bound Academy of Math, Science & Technology Charter Middle School. Though not a Charter school Robert A. Millikan Middle School is highly sought after for being an excellent school.
As for high schools both areas are known for two private schools, Campbell Hall and Harvard-Westlake. If you are looking for public schools I agree with Grace that Cleveland is well known as a magnet school though it is a distance from Sherman Oaks and Studio City.
I hope this helps,
