In 1980 the Lycee bought the 6.2-acre (2.5 ha) former Parkway School property, located in the Hollywood Riviera section of Torrance, from the Torrance Unified School District. This property became the Lycee's Torrance campus, and as of February 1990 the campus had 100 students; in November 1989 the Lycee sold the property.[6]
