Learn about Hermosa Beach

Situated on the Santa Monica Bay and bordered by Manhattan Beach to the north and Redondo Beach to the south and east, Hermosa Beach is just under 1.5 square miles and has a population of around 20,000 residents. The city is known for its stretch of beautiful beaches, surfing, paddleboarding, beach volleyball, and popular nightlife along Pier Avenue.

Hermosa Beach stretches primarily north-south with Pacific Coast Highway(PCH) diving the city.  East of PCH is the Hermosa Hills area running five blocks east to the border of Redondo Beach.  West of PCH is a green belt section stretching the entire length of the city as well as the popular sand section, with a vibrant nightlife and homes right on the beach.

The school system is served by the Hermosa Beach City School District and provides students with two schools – Hermosa View(TK-2) and Hermosa Valley(3-8).  Matriculating students have the choice to attend high school in either Manhattan Beach or Redondo Beach. 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.
