Several notable sites in Los Feliz include the following:
John Marshall High School is a high school in Los Angeles, California. Marshall, which serves grades 9 through 12, is a part of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Marshall is named after jurist John Marshall, who served as Chief Justice of the United States for three decades.
The school is located at 3939 Tracy Street in the Los Feliz district of the city, northeast of Hollywood. Students at Marshall primarily come from Los Feliz, Atwater Village, East Hollywood, northeastern Koreatown, Elysian Valley, and Silver Lake; some are bussed from overcrowded schools in South Los Angeles and Westlake. Melrose Hill is zoned to Marshall, but most residents of that neighborhood send their children to private schools
Shots of Marshall have been used for a variety of movies and television series, most notably Mr. Novak, Boy Meets World, Smart Guy, Sister, Sister, Grosse Pointe Blank, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Can’t Hardly Wait, Rebel Without a Cause, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Boston Public, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Pretty in Pink and Grease.
