Loyola Marymount is all boys, cousin went there, he's doing well in the IT/Engineering fields.

Notre Dame is all girls near Santa Monica, a cousin went there, then went toe U San Fran and an RN now.

You can google Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles to look up more names of schools

Some of the real urban treasures of Los Angeles are much closer, and if one's sending one's kids to private school, then those areas are quite suitable for families. (The public schools in those areas are LAUSD and are quite awful).

While the area that Loyola HS is in is very sketchy (in betweeen Pico Union and West Adams) and not an area I would recommend for families to live in, if one's sending one's kids there then Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Larchmont, or certain parts of Hollywood like Franklin Village/Beachwood Canyon are better options. Those areas are all OK for families if the kids are being sent to private schools. Hancock Park, Fairfax, West Hollywood, Spaulding Square, and Miracle Mile are also OK for families if schools are not an issue.

BTW, I'd consider Immaculate Heart in Los Feliz to be the female counterpart of Loyola more than Notre Dame in West LA.

^ agreed to an extent. Sending your kids to private school opens up a ton of great areas serviced by by LAUSD (which you would not normally consider due to, well, sending your kids to LAUSD).

As mentioned, Brentwood, Palisades, and Santa Monica are great placed to raise a family. There are nice houses while still maintaining a fairly close community. There are so many amazing private schools in Los Angeles. As for elementary schools, it sounds like you would like Echo Horizon, John Thomas Dye, or Wildwood. For high schools it seems like you would like Windward, Harvard Westlake, Loyola (all boys), Marymount (all girls), or Marlborough (all girls).

FYI Marymount is the official sister school to Loyola. They have all of their dances/events together
