I'll be renting first I would say my budget would be $3-4k a month dont think I can get anything less from that from what I've been looking at. It would have to be a house because we will have a recording studio.

We have friends scattered all over LA most of them are single and quite a few have moved to Silverlake but I've been told its LA's equivalent to Shoreditch in London which is great if you are an artist but not so is you have kids. Everyone's suggestions have been a great help and a good start for me to look at schools and accomodation.

If you can't find anything in LA, maybe you could try Orange County instead. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the schooling would probably be of better quality. The LAUSD doesn't have a great name at the moment.

Nowhere in Los Angeles city alone, but in Western portions of South Bay, South Pasadena, Santa Monica, Glendale, and Burbank. And if you're open other places, Orange County.

I'd agree with that comparison.
Many Silver Lake residents with kids move to Burbank when their kids are of middle school age, as it's the closest non-LAUSD district and has great schools. The LAUSD schools are crappy (while Marshall's far from the worst LAUSD school it's still pretty bad). LAUSD schools tend to resemble each other more than the neighborhoods they are located in.

Think long-term, so even if you are going to rent in the beginning, rent in an area that the houses are in the ball park that you could afford. This way you won't have to put the kids through school change (twice).

Thanks someone else mentioned Burbank looks like a good place to start.

Rowland Heights has one of the top school districts in the country. Looking up where are the top places to live around LA, Rowland Heights has popped up through all sorts of various statistics, magazines, etc. The San Gabriel Valley in general is a good area. I wouldn't suggest Pomona or La puente though. La Verne, San Dimas, and Glendora have good school ratings too. West Covina is good too. Covina's nice too. Monrovia, Arcadia, Duarte, that area is more like pasadena. Chino Hills is awesome too.

Come to "Oh Fancy That" (a British store in Tarzana--18399 Ventura Blvd) when you get here! They carry food and candy you won't be able to find in grocery stores here.

I vote for Santa Monica if you want something on the trendy side but still family friendly.

Valencia is one of my favorites as always, very family oriented, safe, good schools, but further from L.A.

Westlake Village-Thousand Oaks area. Just over the Ventura County line.
