Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Downtown Magnets High School is an alternative magnet high school located in the downtown area of the Los Angeles Unified School District. The school houses three magnets: Business, Fashion, and Electronic Information. The three magnets combined hold a total student population of approximately 1,000 students, an almost unheard of, small population size in LAUSD. Since opening in the fall of 1981, close student-faculty bonds have often formed, playing an important factor in the school's very high graduation and college-attendance rates, in addition to high test scores. The school is located less than a ten-minute walk from the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, which holds: The Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, The Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Los Angeles Central Library, and many other educational landmarks. Due to this proximity, various partnerships have formed with nearby institutions, to the great benefit of students. For instance, students in the Business Magnet are able to take full advantage of local internship opportunities with companies like Smith Barney, AIG or Wells Fargo.show more
