MK & A’s Alma Mater

I must admit that I have long been a fan of the Olsen twins.  What can I say – they are my guilty pleasure.  Even today I still enjoy renting their movies (New York Minute  is a personal favorite!) and, yes, I even have the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fashion dolls! LOL  Currently, I do think the twins are a bit odd and I am so not into their whole homeless-chic wardrobe thing, but about five or six years ago I was absolutely obsessed with them.  So I was stoked to find out while reading last month’s Elle Magazine  that during high school MK & A attended Campbell Hall Episcopal School in North Hollywood, and I immediately dragged my boyfriend right out to stalk it. 

Campbell Hall Episcopal School was started in 1944 and currently has approximately 1,000 students.  The K-8 school advocates an education of the heart as well as the mind, and favors a well-rounded curriculum by encouraging the study of art, athletics, music, drama and dance.  Apparently their performing arts department is incredibly strong, so it’s no wonder that MK & A chose to attend school there.  Mary-Kate and Ashley both attended Campbell Hall for, I believe, all of their schooling and graduated on June 7, 2004.  Shortly thereafter Mary-Kate entered a rehabilitation facility to allegedly battle anorexia. 

Campbell Hall sits on about 12 acres right on Laurel Canyon Boulevard.  Although we did not venture onto school grounds, looking in through the gates, the school looked really beautiful and peaceful.  Campbell Hall actually looks more like a national park than a school and the grounds reminded me a lot of L.A.’s Griffith Park.  There are huge eucalyptus trees as far as the eye can see surrounded by long, winding dirt pathways.  Despite being on Laurel Canyon, the grounds were extremely quiet.  Standing there, I really just wanted to grab a good book and a blanket and lay out under one of the trees and read all afternoon.   🙂 

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  🙂

Stalk It: Campbell Hall Episcopal School is located at 4533 Laurel Canyon Boulevard in North Hollywood.  The yearly tuition costs between $18,440 to $23,460 depending on grade level!!

    Spencer Pratt also went to school there.

    No, Spencer went to Crossroads. Do your research. Campbell Hall and Crossroads play each other in soccer that’s where MK’s comment about Spencer came from.

    Uh no. I live in Laurel Canyon. They did go there.

    Campbell Hall is K-12, NOT K-8.

    It is a fantastic school. MK&A did go there, but they were absent most of the time for their work ventures.
