Building Notes

In 2009, Beverly Hills High School occupied 19.5 acres on which a working oil well pumped; the well, operated by the Venoco Oil Company, draws 400-500 barrels of oil per day, generating the school approximately $300,000 per year in royalties. Subsurface oil directly under the high school was drained years ago, but efforts continue to slant drill under neighboring buildings. Beverly Hills High School, in the 2005-2006, enrolled 2,368 students; tel: 310.229.3685 (2009);


According to the publication, The Southwest Builder and Contractor, Los Angeles architect T. Beverly Keim designed an auditorium for the Beverly Hills High School in 1920. The current school was designed by Robert D. Farquhar in 1926-1927; the 1939 swimming pool ("Swim Gym") of the Beverly Hills High School was designed by Stiles O. Clements of the Los Angeles firm, Morgan, Walls and Clements.
