Learn about Manhattan Beach

Situated on the Santa Monica Bay and bordered by El Segundo to the north, Hermosa Beach to the south and Redondo Beach to the east, Manhattan Beach is just under 4 square miles and has a population of around 35,700 residents.  The city is known for its stretch of beautiful beaches, surfing, beach volleyball, fine dining, specialty boutiques, and preferred locale for well-known professional athletes and entertainers.

The city is split by the main thoroughfare of Sepulveda Blvd.  There are three sections – Manhattan Village; Manhattan Heights/Liberty Village; and Mira Costa – in East Manhattan Beach while the the Tree, Hill, and Sand Sections are west of Sepulveda.  Of course, within each of these sections there are a number of interesting and unique neighborhoods offering a variety of lifestyle choices.

The school system is served by the Manhattan Beach Unified School District and provides students with five 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.
