Is anyone surprised that newly listed rentals in Beverly Hills are now touting their "Beverly Hills School District" status? Yesterday's decision to boot non-resident students out of K-8 schools means you have two choices: take your chances with the LAUSD or move on up. This is a time when Beverly Hills-Adjacent won't cut it, so here are six family-friendly rentals in Beverly Hills proper. Additionally, imagining an "Eloise" situation, we called to see how much it would cost to put up a tween in the Montage Hotel for a year, and were told the hotel wasn't interested in such a scenario. So on to the rentals...
