About the Digital Media Magnet
Starting in 2010 with one 9th grade class, Uni High's Digital Media Magnet is a new school that had its first graduating class in the year 2013. All students eligible to enroll in LAUSD can apply.
Students take a three-year elective where they learn diverse elements of digital media design , giving them skills that apply to an ever growing media-rich society. Core subject teachers utilize different forms of technology and media skills integrated with the curriculum as well.
Though the magnet has a digital media focus, students must take all classes necessary to graduate high school and meet A-G college admission requirements. Honors and AP courses are offered to eligible students to ensure they maintain a rigorous academic course of studies.
MAST Magnet (Math, Art, Science & Technology) 2016-17
Starting in 2016-17 school year, all incoming 9th graders will be enrolling in the new MAST Magnet, which will have a sequence of elective courses in math, art, science and technology. Our digital media career pathway will continue to be part of our art and technology course sequence, with the addition of math and science. This change has taken place so that students can have more options to prepare and explore careers that are in demand in those fields.

Q: When will I find out if my child got accepted into University High School's MAST Magnet for the year 2016-17?
A: Parent should start receiving emails and letters after March 14th 2016. You must then accept or decline placement online. If you did not opt to accept or decline online, then you must call Uni's Magnet Office at (310) 914-3606, or email at email@example.com to let the Magnet Coordinator know your decision.
Q: If my child is not on the active list, will he or she be on the wait list?
A: If you applied within the deadline, your child will be on the wait list of the school that you indicated as your first choice only.
Q: I missed the deadline; can I still apply for the magnet?
A: Yes. You can apply online for a Space Available application by going to https://echoicesapplication.lausd.net. You can only apply to one school per application. Therefore you can have multiple applications.
Q: I put Uni's MAST Magnet as my 2nd choice, and now I am on the Wait List for another school. Can I still apply to Uni's Magnet?
A: You will need to decline your placement on the Wait List for the other school. Then you will need to apply to University High School MAST Magnet on the Space Available application listed above.
Q: I have accepted placement, so when will I find out about the bus route for my child?
A: After you have enrolled your child transportation notifications will be mailed to you from the district during the first week of August 2016.
Q: If I applied late, when will I know if my child was accepted?
A: You will have to wait until the Magnet Coordinator calls you. Parents who applied late cannot be guaranteed placement in the school and should consider other options as a back up.
Q: What other options are there at Uni? I want my child to go to your school even if he/she does not get into the magnet.
A: If Uni is not your child's home school then other permits are: Open Enrollment, SAS (if eligible), Work Permit (if parent works near the school. Work place must be in the Los Angeles district).
