Redondo Beach Schools – How they Score

award winning redondo beach schools

By Keith Kyle

Without question one of the many reasons people want to live in Redondo Beach is the highly ranked Redondo Beach Unified School District.  From the elementary schools to Redondo Union High School, the district has a lot to offer and always ranks high in state test scores.  Redondo Union was recently named one of the Top 500 Public High Schools by Newsweek.

Redondo Beach Award Winning Schools – 2013 API Test Scores

Good schools are the cornerstone of good communities, and nowhere is that more true than in Redondo Beach and the South Bay.  One of the most common reasons home buyers give for wanting specifically to be in Redondo Beach is for their kids to be part of this nationally ranked award winning school system.  Redondo Beach schools have ranked as one of the top districts in the country.  While any test scores in the 900 is a tremendous accomplishment, Redondo schools generally far exceed those numbers on a regular basis.

With many home buyers searching for specific school districts, and sometimes even specific schools, the list below should provide assistance as to how they rate and compare with one another.  Contact us to determine what neighborhoods attend what schools.

Townhomes for Sale in South Redondo Beach

Townhomes are a great compromise for many buyers in Redondo Beach. They often offer a better location, larger square footage, and more upgraded options versus a single family home in the same price range.  Many of the townhomes in South Redondo feel very much like single family homes with the structures detached, small yards, and private garages.  Due to the slightly hilly topography of the area many townhomes have ocean views and as with all of Redondo residents enjoy an award winning school system.  This page is specifically dedicated to townhomes in South Redondo and we hope that this makes your home search that much easier.  If you want the simplest way to search for homes fill out our listing update request form and we will customize your search and send daily listing update emails.  This service is free and with no obligation.

South Bay Schools Impress Again in 2012

South Bay schools do it again with outstanding API scores for 2012.  Many of the area schools that have seen impressive test scores the past few years continued that trend with some other local schools improving significantly.   Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Palos Verdes schools continued their award winning performances.  Redondo Beach Unified saw every elementary school exceed 900 scores for the first time with big improvements at Beryl Heights, Birney and Madison.  Only Jefferson dropped slightly but had been the top performer for several years.

The top elementary schools in Manhattan Beach were Grandview Elementary and Robinson Elementary each with incredible scores of 970.

Torrance saw 8 elementary schools exceed the 900 mark.  The scores really do indicate just how strong our local systems are with great teachers and parent participation.  Congrats to all of the schools and students.
