We have smaller class sizes, with a 32:1 ratio of students to teacher.
We offer college prep courses through Los Angeles Southwest College, robotics, music, and film production (for 8th graders) as electives. We incorporate the arts into of gifted magnet program. We offer visual, ceramic, performing, media & digital arts as addition courses embedded within the students core classes.
