Torrance High School, TV Star

You've seen Torrance High, even if you've never been to the South Bay. Season after season, it appeared as the high school used in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Beverly Hills 90210. It was also in the movies The Hot Chick and She's All That, according to imdb. Fast Times at Ridgmont High is not listed there, but I'm pretty sure that was Torrance High too.

Read more about the school's history at the THS website.


The school turned 90 on September 11, 2007, and is holding a fundraising antique car show on October 13, from 10-2. Donation is $5, or $3 for under-18. Cars from all decades, back to 1914, will be on display, and all the money goes to the Alumni Association. Raffles & Fud too. The school is at 2200 W. Carson St., between Crenshaw and Cabrillo--which is really Van Ness but changes its name.

Where can I find photos of the library?

My suggestion would be to contact either tusd.org (Torrance Unified School District) or TorranceHigh.com. OR, contact the local newspaper--the Daily Breeze--to ask if they have pictures.
