La Palma, California: A Perfect Place to Have a Family 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( May 16, 2018) Living in La Palma, California provides me with the convenience of being close to Los Angeles, while giving me a good place to raise my family. This community is small and everyone seems to know everyone. Luckily, the crime rate here is much lower than what it is in some of the n ...Read More eighboring areas

My children go to the local school system and I am very pleased with their education. The teachers seem to care about them and the environment is safe. There are multiple schools in the local system, including George B. Miller Elementary School which my children go to.

The best areas in La Palma, California are probably the neighborhood malls. These provide anything small that you may need so that you do not always have to take trips into Los Angeles for what you need. There is tons of diversity here and your children will grow up learning what it means to truly help others out. If you need to be close to Los Angeles, but have a family to raise, I would strongly recommend my town. Read Less
