There's a stereotype about Calabasas being a place where rich people congregate and look down on the less fortunate for not driving luxury vehicles or spending absurd amounts of money on materialistic items.

That stereotype is true.

In my whole life, I have never been to a place that lacks such diversity in race, thought, and socioeconomic status. My mom worked three jobs just to afford raising rent prices. My classmates at Calabasas High get BMWs and Teslas when they turn 16, total them the following week, and get another high end car. It's utterly disgusting coming from a place where so many are less fortunate and see people throw away their money. Besides the fact that the area is very safe (although, I am black, so not too safe), it is terrible. I hate this whole city and can't wait to graduate next year so I don't have to come back.

Calabasas people are full of sh*t.
It has been a very different experience living in Calabasas. After moving here in 2010, I was thrown into a very different culture than the one I had just left in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is hard living in a community that is very well known and has stereotypes. Many times, I am embarrassed to tell others where I live as there is often times a prejudice that comes along with it. Though the reputation, I feel very fortunate to have lived in such a safe and affluent community.
