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.

Mission Statement

University High School Digital Media Magnet provides our students with multiple opportunities to develop and advance in the digital media arts while engaging in academically challenging courses. We prepare our graduates for the rigor of post-secondary education and for success in a tech-savvy, global economy.

Q: When will I find out if my child got accepted into University High School's Digital Media Magnet for the year 2014-15?

Q: I put Uni's Digital Media 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 Uni on the Space Available application listed above.
