Introduction to the Magnet Schools

Welcome Prospective Verdugo Hills High School Magnet Students and Families
October and early November is the time of year to explore magnet programs. The Choices application window is open until November 13th. 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.



Live Q & A Sessions and Virtual Tours
We will be holding live Q & A sessions and virtual tours November 13th.  This is an opportunity to meet our students and faculty and learn more about our campus and our curriculum. To register for a tour, click on link below. After you register, we will email you a link for your virtual visit.

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.
