City Of La Canada Flintridge
Back to Communities »

With the San Gabriel Mountains providing a dramatic backdrop, La Cañada Flintridge represents the very best of California living. Although the city is only 15 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, LCF maintains a small-town atmosphere with a sense of shared family values that touches every resident. Tree-lined streets and the rolling lawns of spacious estates and colorful flowers surrounding beautiful homes set a standard of gracious living in this "glen between the hills." 


A low-key lifestyle centered around children and community is central to the city's 20,000 plus residents. The City's public school system consistently ranks in the top five percent of California schools.  Houses of worship and a variety of service organizations are an integral part of the community. Volunteers contribute more than 250,000 hours to civic causes each year.   La Canada is also home to miles of hiking trails and equestrian trails, and is located at the base of the Angeles National Forest, making this a terrific community for nature lovers as well.


Well-located to downtown LA, Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, Dodger Stadium, Staples Center, Universal Studios, Disneyland and several other business and entertainment hubs, La Canada Flintridge is a terrific location for families and those seeking a small town feel just outside of metropolitan Los Angeles.


La Canada is home to the real estate communities of La Canada and La Canada Flintridge, both of which are located in the 91011 zip code.

La Cañada Flintridge families are served by a number of exceptional public, private and parochial schools.

Over the years, the District has grown to encompass a high school, a middle school and three elementary schools:


  • Foothills School (7-12)
  • La Canada Elementary (K-6)
  • Palm Crest Elementary (K-6)
  • Paradise Canyon Elementary (K-6)

The western 1/6th of the city lies within the Glendale Unified School District, created in 1936. One elementary school, one middle school, one high school, and one science/technology magnet high school serve these La Cañada Flintridge families:
