But this is the real Beverly Hills High, boasting celebrity alumni as David Schwimmer (Ross on "Friends"), Jonathan Silverman ("The Single Guy"), Alicia Silverstone ("Clueless"), Richard Dreyfuss ("Close Encounters of the Third Kind"), Gina Gershon ("Bound"), Marlo Thomas ("That Girl"), Richard Chamberlain ("Dr. Kildare"), Rob Reiner ("All in the Family"), Betty White ("The Golden Girls"), Tori Spelling ("90210"), Carrie Fisher ("Star Wars"), singer/actor Shaun Cassidy, ("The Hardy Boys Mysteries"), Albert Brooks ("Mother"), Rhonda Fleming ("A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court"), Joel Grey ("Cabaret"), Lorraine Newman ("Saturday Night Live"), Julie Kavner ("Rhoda"), Joely Fisher ("Ellen"), Kelli Williams ("The Practice"), Antonio Sabato Jr. ("General Hospital"), singer Lenny Kravitz and conductor Andre Previn.
On the negative side, the infamous Menendez brothers, Lyle and Erik, were students at Beverly Hills High, as was the focus of the Clinton sex scandal, Monica Lewinsky (although she left in 1990 at age 16 to attend an exclusive Bel-Air prep school.)
Even though it isn't the shooting site for "Beverly Hills 90210," the high school has still seen its fair share of movie cameras on campus...
And the school was
also seen in the 1999 film "Anywhere
But Here" - it was where Susan
Sarandon's daughter 'Heather' (Natalie
Portman) went to school.
Beverly Hills High school is located just two blocks east of the Century
City Shopping Center, on Moreno Drive, (between Santa Monica Blvd.
& Olympic Blvd). / From Rodeo Drive, go north to Santa Monica
Boulevard, and turn left (west). Follow Santa Monica Boulevard southwest
(about three quarters of a mile) to Moreno Drive. Turn left (southeast)
on Moreno Drive, and go three blocks to the school, which will be on your
right (west) side. The gym (with the sliding pool) is located near the
athletic track, on the southeast side of the campus.
you would prefer to see the real high school where the TV series "Beverly Hills
90210" was actually filmed, head
out to the city of Torrance, and 2200 W. Carson Street. If you're a fan
of the show, you'll recognize Torrance High
School's familiar Moorish arches, which
Brenda & Dylan (Shannon Doherty
Perry) strolled past each week on the
popular TV series. / To reach Torrance High, take the San Diego (405) Freeway
to the Crenshaw Boulevard offramp, and head south on Crenshaw (about two
and a half miles) to Carson Street. Turn left (east) on Carson Street,
and go three blocks east (to just past Plaza Del Amo). The school will
be on your right (south) side.
