LAHS Math/Science and Technology College Magnet


Students at Los Angeles High School Math/Science Magnet come from a variety of neighborhoods, primarily in the Mid-city area (including the racially-mixed Latino, Black and Korean neighborhoods within walking distance of the school, as well as Koreatown and Filipinotown) and South Los Angeles. The racially and ethnically varied student body and the diverse Magnet faculty provide a rich social environment in which the effects of racial isolation due to neighborhood demographic patterns can be, to some extent, ameliorated.
Statement of Purpose

The Magnet School offers students a challenging college-preparatory curriculum. Course work includes rigorous instruction in regular, honors, and Advanced Placement classes with an emphasis on Math, Science, and Technology electives and other extra-curricular activities.

The focus of the Magnet School is preparation for admission to four-year colleges and universities. Our goal is to ensure that students not only are accepted into public and private colleges and universities, but also that they have the academic skills and social maturity to succeed in any four-year program. 

The magnet school, which was founded in 1981, has grown substantially over the years. In 1994 the magnet expanded to include ninth grade. The total student capacity is currently 311 with 11 teachers.
