Hermosa Beach Info
Hermosa Beach is a relatively small town, geographically, extending only about 15 blocks from East to West and 40 blocks from North to South, with the Pacific Coast Highway running down the middle. Situated on the Pacific Ocean, Hermosa’s average summer temperature ranges in the mid-70s. Consistent ocean breezes lessen what can be high summertime temperatures in the surrounding Los Angeles areas and virtually eliminate the smog for which the LA Basin is notorious.
An affluent community, popular with surfers and beach volleyball enthusiasts, Hermosa Beach also has great schools which is attractive to families.
Of the three beach cities (Manhattan, Hermosa, Redondo), only Hermosa owns its beach (the other two cities’ beaches are owned by the county of Los Angeles). The wide flat beach makes Hermosa Beach one of the most popular places to play beach volleyball, from professional to amateur. The Strand, which stretches North into Manhattan Beach and South into Redondo Beach, is favored by walkers, joggers, bikers and sightseers.
There are three main neighborhoods in Hermosa - the Sand section, Hermosa Valley and East Hermosa (aka Hermosa Hills). You can explore each of these neighborhoods individually by clicking on the appropriate neighborhood link provided here.
Of the three neighborhoods, the Sand section, as its name implies, is the closest to the beach, encompassing the area west of Valley Drive. There are some nice view homes in Hermosa Valley, which covers the generally upsloping section of Hermosa between the Valley/Ardmore green belt and PCH. And, of course, there is East Hermosa which encompasses all of Hermosa east of PCH.
Naturally, as you get closer to the ocean, home prices tend to increase, culminating in the stratospheric prices for homes on The Strand, which look out onto the beach-adjacent bike/walk paths and the beach itself.
The school system in Hermosa Beach is divided into two groups - kindergarten through 2nd grade with students attending Hermosa View school off of Prospect Avenue, and 3rd grade through middle school with students attending Hermosa Valley school located off of Valley near Pier Avenue. Hermosa Beach does not have its own high school. Residents have the choice of sending students to either Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach or Redondo Union High School in South Redondo Beach. Like all the beach city schools, the test scores at both of Hermosa's schools rank extremely high.
The 3-year average scores for these schools based on their 2011-2013 Academic Performance Index (API) scores are set forth below. The API is an annual measure of a school's test score performance calculated by the California Department of Education and is a single number on a scale of 200 to 1,000 that indicates how well students in a school performed on the previous spring’s tests.
