You may want to find Jami Bernard's book:
QUENTIN TARANTINO: THE MAN AND HIS MOVIES. Click on the title for info.
As far as I can tell in one of the beginning chapters from the book, he went to a private school that he hated,
The Hawthorne Christian School as a youngster, and then he chose to go to an inner-city school as a teen, which I don't see named. But he's quoted as saying he lived in the South Bay area, if that means anything of relevance.
Don't do what he did, though (by dropping out of highschool altogether).
