Wait what?

You are considering:
  • Valencia (28 miles from K-town)
  • Winnetka (22 miles from K-town
  • Tarzana (20 miles from K-town)

But somehow La Cresenta (14 miles from K-town) is off the table because it's too far away?

I am a mom of 3 here in Mid-Wilshire, a very nice, safe & hip neighborhood here in Koreatown. Recently, a huge K-12 complex was built here w/ 3 different schools that offer K-12 education. Imagine the comfort of not having to move from one place to another everytime your child goes to middle school & high school bec. the school is K-12. It's called the RFK Community School. One school inside the RFK Community School is UCLA Community School which is run by UCLA in partnership w/ LAUSD. Yes there are different ethnicities enrolled but the area & neighborhood here in the business district & proximity to everything bec. you live in the heart of the city is a major plus. It's a very short commute. And if you don't want to use your car to save on gas, there's the Metrolink Wilshire/Normandie station. Nice apartments to look at are the avenues of Ardmore, Normandie, Kenmore etc. to guarantee that you are in the boundary of UCLA-CS. We can change the school rating if we send our kids to nice public schools like this. Rent is affordable. You can easily find a 1 bedroom for $1000/month. You can even move farther in Miracle Mile but it's not as lively as Koreatown/Mid-Wilshire with lots of offices & buildings where you can also walk to your office after dropping off your kids to school.
