Magnet Vision:
Our curricular goal for our Gifted Global Learning Magnet program is to achieve academic excellence through departmentalization, global themes, LAUSD required texts, as well as numerous supplemental outside sources that further enhance the global pathways. These global theme-based pathways, which align with the California Common Core State Standards to meet expectations of gifted and high ability students as they experience real-world applications and become college-prepared and career ready students, are Communication, Citizenship, Career, Culture, and Community.
Magnet Mission:
Our mission is to create a culturally diverse community of college and career ready students who will benefit from a well-rounded education including a comprehensive understanding of the world. We will set a solid foundation for lifelong learners who will productively engage in a changing global society that is increasingly multicultural and diverse in politics, economics, science, and real life issues. Through differentiated methods of instruction, including inquiry-based and project-based learning, the focus will be on students understanding their role in government, environment, and culture as an avenue toward global competency.
