One of the most common reasons people want to live in Manhattan Beach is the quality of the schools. One of the most frequent questions is what elementary school will a child attend depending on where they buy a home in Manhattan Beach. Manhattan Beach Unified School District has 5 elementary schools, one middle school and one high school (Mira Costa). See the map below to get a better sense of where the elementary schools are located and the boundaries of each.
In general the hill section and south sand section neighborhoods attend Robinson Elementary, the north sand section and parts of the tree section attend Grand View, the eastern half of the tree section attends Pacific, the Manhattan Heights and Liberty Village areas (east of Sepulveda and north of MB Blvd) attend Meadows and the Mira Costa area of East Manhattan attend Pennekamp. All are fantastic schools with incredible test scores and parent participation is second to none.
