About Vistamar

Vistamar School is a college preparatory, co-educational, independent day school that serves a diverse population of students in grades 9-12, supported by a generous program of Moderated Tuition. Approximately 35% of our students participate in our Moderated Tuition program, and approximately 50% of our students self-identify as students of color.  As described in our mission statement, we seek to attract a faculty and student body who bring diversity of thought and culture to our school community, and who will be committed to ensuring that we provide an inclusive environment for the respectful exchange of multiple perspectives.

Since our opening in 2005, enrollment has grown to 240 students, who are drawn from over 80 different middle schools and over 60 zip codes in greater Los Angeles.

Vistamar is located in eastern El Segundo. The school is close to major freeway interchanges and is well served by public transportation, including a Metro rail station.

Tuition and salaries are competitive with other Los Angeles area independent schools.
