After World War II, an industry and population explosion hit La Habra. In 1952, The Alpha Beta Co. established its headquarters in La Habra and in the '50s and '60s, the orange groves vanished when the housing boom started. Today, Standard Oil still owns wells in southern La Habra and the city's bedroom-community reputation remains.
A full-service city employing 300 people, La Habra provides a full range of services, including police protection, water and sanitation services, street maintenance, and animal control.

Within the City are three outstanding school districts, which combined, operate 8 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, and 2 high schools. A number of private and specialty schools also exist including preschools and those for the developmentally challenged.
