Perplexed by the magnet system? Confused by the points? Want to hear from folks who’ve been there before you? Spend a few minutes by reading our FAQs and poke around the site a bit.
Post your LAUSD magnet questions in the comments below.
*As a friendly reminder, this is a free service, provided by volunteers. Not all schools are represented and opinions may differ.
This is the thread to give a little happy dance or commiserate with others.
Please post the school, your child’s ethnicity, grade level, and point total, and whether they were accepted or waitlisted. This becomes part of the historical record to help parents predict the future likelihood of acceptance for kids.

Notification will be April 21, with the deadline of April 28, so the ‘season’ will be fast upon us. Hopefully, with this move, there will be less squatting on magnet spots waiting for SAS results.
Here’s an article from the LA Times on some of the leading magnets: http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-me-edu-magnet-test-scores-2016/
This list will come in handy when comparing with the e-choices site later this fall.
I’ve been informed that school starts in just a few weeks. Feel free to post SAS/magnet/neighborhood schools with openings–and the specifics of grade levels, and contact information. Help prevent split grade classrooms and help families find the right schools.
Happy end of summer. ❤
Until the 2016-17 space available list posts (and I will link it here), if you are a principal, magnet coordinator, or involved parent, feel free to share magnet openings in this thread.
Please post the school, the city, and any other pertinent information.
Let’s help parents find available magnets and fill those spots in each school.
