You need to be here in person and go look at them yourself. Public schools in L.A. are a little rough and your child will be exposed to alot. I looked at several and my children ended up at Beverly Hills High School. Good program. Good Teachers. Good College prep. They pick classes at Santa Monica College a week earlier than anyone else as class get booked up quick after graduation. There is alot of private school around Los Angeles. Approx $15,000 to $25,000 a year tuition.
