Pacific Palisades is a residential community with a small business district and is adjacent to Santa Monica, Malibu, and Brentwood. The school is just a few miles from the Getty Villa, 20 minutes from the UCLA campus in Westwood as well as the Getty Museum in Brentwood; Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles with the Staples Center, Dodgers Stadium and Disney Concert Hall are within 20 miles.
