Palos Verdes means: Although this community has high ratings for public schools and is financially secure, it remains one of the most exclusive and bigoted communities in the country. While the people of this community act as if they care about all people and are anti-racism, one high school had many years of racist incidents. The parents are responsible for paying for top-quality tutors to their children, which is why high schools still rank well despite the work involved. The majority of teachers are not paid to be in the top ten. Yet, the school system places so much value in mental health than it does on the test scores that they can display to the rest. It is a place where there’s nothing. The teens love to party, fight and smoke, then jump on social media whenever they return home. Yet, they continue to exclude others. It is very different from the rest of LA County. This community is not varied, it has very few activities, and is its own entity. It will be easier to get to know those Mexicans who commute from elsewhere to work in the school and manual labor. (in Community Dictionary, added by Jamison Levy)
