The Los Angeles City School District was a school district that served Los Angeles, California, and some adjoining areas between 1870 and 1961.

History[edit]

The district was formed on May 2, 1870, with the same boundaries as the city of Los Angeles. In 1890 the Los Angeles City High School District was formed to serve high school students. The Los Angeles City School District and various other feeder elementary school districts served elementary and junior high students.[1]

The elementary school district annexed various elementary school districts during its existence. The annexations include:

  • April 17, 1896: Harmony and Rosedale
  • February 26, 1906: McKinley
  • 1907
    • January 22: Green Meadows and Sunnyside
    • February 25: Gardena
    • April 8: Howard and Moneta
  • 1909

  • 1912
    • February 1: Mt. Washington-Washington Park
    • February 9: American and Annandale
    • March 25: Belvedere

The district disappeared on July 1, 1961, when it and the Palos Verdes School District merged and became a unified school district, the Los Angeles Unified School District. The annexation left the Topanga School District and the Las Vergenes Union School District as separate remnants of the high school district, renamed to the West County Union High School District.[1]
