Redondo Beach

Learn about Redondo Beach

With its southern area situated on the Santa Monica Bay while its northern half is landlocked and bordered by Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach is just under 6.25 square miles and has a population of around 68,000 residents.  The city is known for its stretch of beautiful beaches, surfing, beach volleyball, and cultural arts center.

The city’s two areas – North Redondo and South Redondo – are divided by Anita/190th St. which runs east-west and turns into Herondo Ave. as it crosses Pacific Coast Highway(PCH).  Redondo Beach’s waterfront starts just south of Herondo Ave.  A highly desirable section of South Redondo, called Hollywood Riviera, incorporates a casual business district and stunning hillside ocean-view homes.

The school system is served by the Redondo Beach Unified School District and provides students with eight elementary schools; two middle schools; and one high school. If you’re house hunting and need to know the school boundaries in which the home sits, click here.  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.
