A magnet school where diversity works
As one of the first LAUSD magnet schools and the largest magnet elementary, Brentwood Science Magnet welcomes the diversity of Los Angeles to its campus every day. Our families speak 26 languages and come from around the block, across the city and all over the world.
Children at Brentwood Science are exposed to a virtual UN experience that opens minds to other cultures and prepares them to see a world where children of all backgrounds are friends. Respect for others is a life lesson that is deeply understood in such a diverse environment
A World of Caring Professionals
An experienced staff of caring education professionals motivate students and nurture a love of learning. Every student seems to have their favorite classroom teacher, or science lab teacher, or art teacher -- and everyone loves Mr. Andy our music teacher! Even our School Nurse can give a student that special encouragement to excel! Your child can also enjoy lunchtime enrichment with the highly regarded Parker-Anderson classes and after school programs with the energetic STAR instructors.
A School with the Resources to help every child learn and grow
In a world of budget cuts, can you imagine a school with a full time Nurse, a School Psychologist, a Counselor, a GATE program that identifies more Gifted and Talented students every year than any other elementary school in LAUSD,and of course our Principal and 52 of the city’s best teachers? You’ve just imagined Brentwood Science Magnet Elementary. A school with the resources to address your child’s academic and social needs.
A Garden environment to soothe a child’s soul
The seven Brentwood Green Learning gardens and YMCA Youth House space on the campus of Brentwood Science Magnet form a model school campus filled with leafy trees and shady benches perfect for reading or one-on-one tutoring time. The campus is also close enough to the Pacific Ocean and far enough from the freeways to provide great air quality for our active and energized students.
An Administration that knows student safety is job one.
From a full time nurse to Yard Supervision Staff, Brentwood Science has invested in the staff needed to have your child covered. The Student Safety Committee works year-round to monitor safety concerns and make recommendations on staffing levels and school wide safety training.
