Peninsula Heritage School says

Peninsula Heritage School is nestled on a spacious three-acre campus on the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula, which borders the Pacific Ocean south of Los Angeles. Our California ranch style buildings provide an idyllic setting for children to enjoy a safe, individual-centered learning community that allows for a memorable childhood. Our students are immersed through academics and the arts in small classes and full days, with exceptional teachers who are passionate about education. As you walk our lovely campus, you will discover a warm and loving school where children and adults are honored and esteemed. At PHS we embrace diversity in both learning styles and cultural backgrounds. Every student at Peninsula Heritage has the opportunity to reach his/her potential while maintaining a sense of individuality. We achieve this through our small class sizes, our specialty teachers, and our enrichment programs for advanced learners. HISTORY Established in 1961 The school's founders began with the concept of opening a school that would support the dignity and worth of each individual. They selected the beautiful, country-like location at Palos Verdes Drive North and Rolling Hills Road in the City of Rolling Hills Estates, CA. In 1986, the school changed its name from Wingrock School to Peninsula Heritage School in conjunction with a move to a nondenominational status. A distinctive characteristic of the School has been its loving and positive environment. Visitors to our campus frequently remark, "These students are so happy - and their teachers are too!" Peninsula Heritage School emphasizes the development of the whole child and of ethical character. It promotes acceptance and appreciation of diversity and provides a strong academic program that assesses and supports the individual needs of each child.




Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
