El Segundo

Learn about El Segundo

Situated on the Santa Monica Bay and bordered by Manhattan Beach to the south and Los Angeles International Airport to the north, El Segundo is just under 5.5 square miles and has a population of around 17,000 residents. Its economy has a strong presence in the aerospace, aviation, petroleum, hi-tech and entertainment industries as well as a burgeoning retail scene along the Sepulveda corridor.

The city is the northernmost beach city of the South Bay with all residential living west of Sepulveda Blvd. The business district is anchored on Main St. with surrounding shops all within walking distance from most residential areas, making for a warm and cozy small-town feel.

The school system is served by the El Segundo Unified School District and provides students with a preschool; two elementary schools; one middle school; and one high school. For those wanting to know overall school performance, test scores, student demographics, student staffing, and other hard facts within the district, or even at other schools and districts throughout California, there's all kinds of data at the California Dept. of Education website.
