- In 1999, an optional attendance boundary was agreed upon by the two school districts in which residents in Eastview could opt to either send their children to PVPUSD schools or LAUSD schools. Middle school-aged students in the area may attend Miraleste Intermediate School and high school-aged students attend both Palos Verdes Peninsula High School in Rolling Hills Estates and Palos Verdes High School in Palos Verdes Estates. The LAUSD school, Crestwood Elementary, serves a sizeable number of Eastview children. Many families live in the Eastview area in order for their children to attend Crestwood.
There are two high schools, Palos Verdes Peninsula High School (formerly called Rolling Hills High School) and Palos Verdes High School (the latter located just a half block from the Pacific Ocean). In the 1970s there were three high schools: Palos Verdes High School, Rolling Hills High School, and Miraleste High School.
