“Visiting San Jose Highly Gifted Magnet school was the highlight of my 3 years in the LAUSD… I will never forget Nicholas and his classmates.”
Ramon Cortines, former Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent
San Jose Highly Gifted Magnet school gives children of extraordinary intelligence an opportunity to learn, grow and develop to their maximum potential. The Highly Gifted Magnet schools in Los Angeles are one of the few programs in the US designed for children with IQ of 145+. These students have unique intellectual, social and emotional needs not addressed in regular “gifted” classrooms. San Jose HG Magnet brings together specialized teachers, challenging curriculum and compatible peers to ensure a meaningful education in a supportive environment.
SJHGM students have the highest average test scores in the San Fernando Valley, though our teachers do not focus on test results (magnet test scores published by LA Times). Our Magnet program has 3 classes in grades 2 through 5 and is hosted on the campus of San Jose Street Elementary School.
