Los Angeles Magnet Advantages

    Magnet schools give students the opportunity to explore a specialized learning environment to share their experience with other students who have similar goals. Class sizes in magnet schools tend to be smaller than average. This allows a greater degree of student to teacher interaction. Students who choose to attend a magnet school must submit an application. The next application period will be in February.

The Magnet School combines advantages of a small school with those of a large school.
