We are looking to buy a house but can't afford Culver City (and for that matter west of Culver City i.e Play Visa, mar Vista, Marina etc..) so are considering buying somewhere in the areas along the Expo Metro Line East of Culver City towards USC. There are a few OK houses/neighborhoods in those areas that, due to proximity to the metro, might improve. We are currently renting in the West Adams area so are fully aware of the pros and cons..

However what won't improve anytime soon are the Schools. We are therefore hoping that as my wife works in Culver City we might be able to use the Culver City INTERDISTRICT PERMIT process (Interdistrict Permit Information) to get our son into one the great Culver City Schools.

Our son is 3 years old so this won't be for a few years but we want to plan ahead

So does anyone have any idea what our chances might be of getting him into a Culver City school while living near to but outside of Culver City? As there is a process set up it is obviously possible however the odds may be very LOW! Will the distance to the Culver City/Schools matter?

My other question is why are the Schools in that area (between USC and Culver City - south of the 10) so very bad? I can see most of them have Great School Ratings of 1! Does anyone have experience of those Schools - are they really that bad? Will they improve?

Schools are that bad because it's LAUSD in some of the worst neighborhoods in LA

many school districts near LA allow interdistrict transfers if one of the parents works in the city in question. I know Burbank does this, as does Santa Monica from what I've heard. According to the site you posted culver city allows transfers without any employment verification, but openings seem to be very limited.
