A former diamond in the rough, home to movie studios, manufacturers, great schools, parks and unwelcoming to outsiders. Culver City shines with brilliance. No longer a hub city you pass through on your way somewhere else. While not perfect, it's a destination city for living, shopping, dining, recreation,education etc. It always had a small town feel where you know one another. It has become more diverse and open to people of color, if thats a concern. The city takes pride in being clean and safe. City officials and services are reachable and responsive. Unfortunately, no longer one of LA County's best kept secrets, overrun by new york style high rises, the cost of living has skyrocketed. With this comes the loss of quiet, quaint suburbia to traffic jams and an influx of unwanted elements. Yet, it remains a desirable place to live, work, play and call home.

As a white-passing Latina, my experience living in Culver City was pretty good. I was blessed to be able to attend their schools from K-12, granting me a good education in a fairly safe city. However, the city is majority white, conservative, and pro-cop; that is to say, they tend to look past racial injustices. It saddens me to say that there were many racial incidents at my schools, and in the city, that were pushed under the rug. Police would often racially profile kids that went to my High School on permit, and a lot of my friends of color walked the neighborhoods in fear. I wish I could change the minds of these conservative people, to provide an equal and safe place for all people to live and explore.
Culver City is a very nice place to live in. There are local stores that make both grocery shopping and shopping for recreation easy. I was also able to find a very good school to excel in academically that was within walking distance from where I lived. The school featured a very welcoming community. Not to mention, LAX, the main airport in Los Angeles, is relatively close to the City. The only negatives that I will say about it is that living in Culver City is very expensive. That, and that there are several habitual smokers who will live in the area. I recommend this school for those who are willing to spend money for a nice place to live in, but will greatly benefit from an amicable community.
