West Adams Preparatory High School is located on Vermont Avenue and Washington Blvd.

Washington Boulevard is the longest (27.4 miles - 44 km) continuous east-west arterial road in Los Angeles, California. It starts by the Pacific Ocean just west of Pacific Avenue in Marina del Rey, and ends far to the east in the city of Whittier, on Whittier Boulevard. It is south of Venice Boulevard for most of its length. At Wade Street, Washington Place is formed adjacent and parallel and lasts until just east of Sepulveda Boulevard, where it merges back into Washington Boulevard. Washington merges into Culver Boulevard briefly, but forms back into its own street at Canfield Avenue. Washington Boulevard carries the Metro Blue Line in the center median from Flower Street to Long Beach Avenue south of Downtown L.A. and serves the Grand, San Pedro and Washington stations. (Source, Thomas Guide, 1997 edition)

Washington Boulevard primarily passes through locations in the mid southern portion of Los Angeles County. The communities to the west include affluent areas such as Marina del Rey and Ladera Heights. Further east it passes through Culver City, South Los Angeles, City of Commerce, Montebello, and Pico Rivera. Washington Boulevard is the dividing line between Venice and Marina del Rey.
