Welcome to Verdugo Hills High School and our magnets, the Science Technology Engineering Math and Media (STEMM) Magnet and the Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Magnet.


Both programs give our magnet students the great advantages of a small, elite, and specialized school with the huge advantages of a large, comprehensive high school. Both magnets offer specialized curricula with unique attributes such as job shadows, internships, junior and senior recitals/showcases, engaging freshmen introductory courses, and more!
