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,

Yes! Sherman Oaks is very safe. Of course anywhere you go you need to be aware of your surrounding, but as far as LA goes, Sherman Oaks is very safe.

Seems to be correct. The last recorded change of ownership was in '97, although there is some confusion between the last recorded owner's identity and the property tax payer. Could just be a clerical error. For a definitive answer, one would need to check with a title company or a lawyer.

Hi Suzanne,

When I do a cost/sq ft analysis, I only compare like properties. A single family home will always have more value per squre feet since a much larger land is part of it. As others have mentioned a strict per sq ft. value is not the best way to compare homes, as so many other factors go into determining value, i.e. amenitites, year built, condition, location, etc.

I hope that helps.

You are not the first to find that your money goes quite a bit farther in the Valley than it would on the Westside. My family has been here since the early 1940's and just as South of the Blvd. is a more attractive area to live, so goes the Westside. All the schools below that have been mentioned are quality elementary schools in the LAUSD system. You should know that Carpenter has just been awarded with a magnet designation from the LAUSD. This should make it the most sought after public school in the LAUSD system. Also, if you are looking South of the Blvd. make sure you look up Woodcliff, from about Meadville to Mulholland. This will put you in the Roscomare school district in Bel Air.

As for looking for a home, just make sure that you work with an agent that is well qualified and knows the area. His or her expertise and relationships with other working agents can go a long way to getting you the best possible house at the best possible price.

Good luck in you search.
