Magnet Vision:
It doesn't matter what gender, race, sexuality or religion you are - your path to power lies in your own character, your service to the greater good, your ability to raise your voice and to defend your own position, and in your abiding connection to friends, peers and family. Rise above the false limitations imposed on you by culture and the media. You have within you limitless possibilities. Let's realize those possibilities together.
Magnet Mission:
For every child to see themselves reflected in a curriculum that includes figures of all genders, colors and sexualities, figures who have seen a problem in their world and fixed it. With this inspiration, children will then be given the tools to make their own positive change, and to make the world a better place. At SAGE we also understand that the social emotional needs of middle school children need to be met at every level. To that end, we are partnering with the UCLA Mindfulness Foundation, and will build in a program of mindfulness, stress management, community building, meditation and, in lieu of PE, a three year program of yoga.
