Hi there Sarah, I would consider Brentwood, Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach, Pacifi Palisades,
The Schoools awill differ considerably form City to City. Ypou should consider Magnet Schools. Youc an search for these schools and properties close to them easilty from my site. Just click on Find Homes, input counties and citiues and then it will pull all the properties close to the best schools

Kind Regards

I like Manhattan Beach & the schools have a great reputation. I live in Larchmont Village in Hancock Park south of Hollywood & there are tons of familes, parks and a great walking/shopping street. Third street school & Larchmont Charter have great reputations - getting in to those schools depends on where you buy & for the Charter school, a lottery. I also like Burbank for their schools & parks & shopping/eating. Call me if I can help. Eileen Lanza Keller Williams 323.810.7935

Sarah, where in Los Angeles are you considering?

There are several neighborhoods with excellant schools both public and private.

Will you be renting or buying? Some areas are pricier than others.

This all fits into the equation.

My market area is Westside Los Angeles and am most familiar with the neighborhoods of Brentwood, Westwood, West LA, Venice, Marina Del Rey and the Cities of Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.

Let me know if I can be of help.

Hi Sarah,

Are you talking about LA proper or its environs? If you want to be very near the city and enjoy good schools and close to the beach, I would suggest the Brentwood area or Pacific Palisades. E-mail me, I know of this new construction in the Brentwood area that's close to a magnet school. Good Luck.

Newport is going to be hard to compete with! You might like Manhattan Beach,but for family friendly areas you can't been my neighborhood of Culver City. We have parks galore and a very good school district. There is information on it on my website.

Hi there Sarah! There are a few nice areas with great schools and family atmosphere. Right off the top of my head, Santa Monica above Wilshire Blvd is a great school district, Brentwood is excellent, Beverly Hills has excellent schools although you have to be inside city limits, otherwise you are in Los Angeles. Also there is the Wonderland school district in the Hollywood Hills.

There are numerous websites where you can check the local schools for a particular address. is one i believe.

Let me know if I can be of service to you in your home search and the areas I mentioned are my expertise!
