Hi Sue,

Are you looking for Primary, Middle or Diploma?

I have a French Baccalaureate from overseas so I don't know on top of my head which schools offer the IB course here in LA.

However, here's a great link where you can look up this information:

I am available to consult with you on the areas and the appropriate home values and current listings. Just email me and I'll happily assist you.

According to the IB web-site I went to they offer the program at Valencia Highschool. Valencia is a great place to raise a family. It is safe with low crime, very family orieinted, great schools, newer & affordable. You can find out more about Valncia on my web-site. http://www.Valencia.com

Dear Sue,

Welcome to L.A.! Los Angeles is a sprawling metropolis with many neighborhoods to choose from - and a lot of traffic. I would love to help you coordinate the best location for you and your family based on the schools you need and where you may be working. I'm an L.A. native and I know this town! Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Hi Sue, When are you planning to move? And are your children ready for school, this year or next, and if so, what level? If what you want is a public school in Los Angeles, the LA Unified School District is developing a program in IB, but they're not completely there yet. Check out the LAUSD website page for info on IB Interest at: http://notebook.lausd.net/portal/page?_pageid=33,1158677&… If the Pasadena area would work for you, there is an IB elementary school http://pusd.willard.schoolfusion.us/ and high school http://www.blair.pasadenausd.org/.

Is Private School an option? If it is, there is a Lycee Francaise on the West Side of LA that is an IB school, and has great neighborhoods close by.
You can also search the ibo.org website for more info.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
