Winnetka is a neighborhood in the west-central San Fernando Valley in the city of Los Angeles. It is a highly diverse area, both for the city and for Los Angeles County, with a relatively large percentage of Hispanic and Asian people.
Winnetka was founded in 1922 as a small farming community. Today there are six public and three private schools in the area, a recreation center, two pocket parks and a city-operated child-care center.
The name is thought to be derived from a Native American word meaning “beautiful land.” Winnetka’s public school system gained national recognition for its innovative experiments in teaching (often called the Winnetka Plan).
