Since 1985, the L.A. County High School for the Arts has shared classroom space at Cal State L.A. Now, the school gets its own dedicated building at a cost of $31 million.

The Los Angeles High School for the Arts, or LACHSA has an impressive list of alumni, including singer Josh Groban and actress Jenna Elfman of ABC's sitcom "Dharma and Greg." The school started in 1985 and ever since, it has borrowed classroom space from Cal State LA, near Alhambra.
