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

At University High School Digital Media Magnet we provide our students with multiple opportunities to develop and advance in the digital media arts while engaging in academically challenging courses.
