Introduction to the Magnet Schools

Annual Magnet Survey

Dear STEMM Magnet Parents and Guardians,

This month we are conducting the 2020-2021 ammual magnet survey.  The survey is a key element of the annual evaluation of our magnet and it provides us with important feedback that we use to tailor our program to meet the needs and expectations of our students and parents. The survey takes a few minutes and your responses are completely anonymous.

To complete the survey, click on the link that corresponds to your student's magnet program. If you have students in both magnets, please complete a survey for each program.

Welcome Prospective Verdugo Hills High School Magnet Students and Families
The Choices late application window is now open. The Pandemic makes the search for an ideal program especially challenging. Since we can not invite you to our campus for an in person tour, we have created a video to introduce you to Verdugo Hills High School and our magnet programs.

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! 

Drop by and see us, and then enroll through the LAUSD Choices website.
