Welcome to Sherman Oaks

 

Sherman Oaks is a neighborhood in the San Fernando valley region of Los Angeles founded in 1927 with boundary changes afterward. With a population of more than 60,000 people, it was part of a 2012 ballot measure proposal to form a separate municipality for the entire SF Valley  that was defeated in a citywide election. The neighborhood includes a portion of the Santa Monica Mountains which gives Sherman Oaks a lower population density than some other areas in Los Angeles.

Forty-five percent of Sherman Oaks residents aged 25 and older had earned a four-year degree by 2000, a high percentage for both the city and the county. The percentage of those residents with a master’s degree or higher was also high for the county.

  • Van Nuys Middle School. The school was in the Van Nuys community until 1991, when City Council member Marvin Braude directed that a 45-block area that included the school be renamed as part of Sherman Oaks. The school continued to use the name “Van Nuys Middle”.
