There is a large amount of properties currently listed for sale there including a high amount of short sales and REO's. And lots more units to be built. You may be able to get into a great community for a great price but unless you plan on staying for a minimum of 5 years it might not be the best investment in my opinion.

Very nice area and people from other areas often use and comment how much they like the park in Playa Vista.

Definitely a safe area but you can always pull up community crime stats online.

This is the best tool to find out the LA school district info for a particular address:

Ginger, Playa Vista Development was the first one since the past 40 years in Los Angeles. It is a city within the city. They have foot patrolls as well as motorized patroll inside the Development. Safe is a personal level, I show properties there on a regular basis. I see children with parents and or nannies walking in the park like setting. They have their own library, their own community pool as well as a full service gymn. It is also a Melo-Roose District.Contact me directly if you have any other questions.

If you are concerned about safety, your best source of information is the local police department, why not call/visit and ask all your questions, hear all firsthand--if unfamiliar with the area do visit several times to get a sense of belonging, look at everything that is important to you, etc.; real estate professionals are prohibited from “steering”—enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
