STEMM Magnet

How we do on SBAC/CAASPP assessments


Our Goal...

The goal of the STEMM Magnet is to provide our students with a strong foundation in academics (A-G requirements) within the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, & Medicine (STEMM), to close the existing achievement gap, and to facilitate the transition of our students to post-secondary opportunities in universities, technical schools, and the 21st century work-place.

STEMM Pathways

Students enrolled in the Science Technology Engineering Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) Magnet will have a choice of two pathways -- Engineering and Biomedical Science. The engineering and biomedical sciences courses will be experiential; we want you to get involved in the projects. In fact, there are no textbooks, just challenges... and lots of computer design and analysis.


  1. Introduction to Engineering Design: Students use 3D solid modeling design software to design solutions to solve proposed problems.

  2. Principles of Engineering: Students will investigate engineering and high tech careers and employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems.

  3. Computer Science Principles: Students will learn the basics of coding in a variety of programming languages including Python, HTML, and NetLogo, and learn how to make apps for Android devices.

  4. Engineering Design & Development: In capstone course students work in teams to identify a real-life problem that they would like to fix, then design and develop an original solution by applying an engineering design process. 


Biomedical Science

  1. Principles of the Biomedical Sciences: Students investigate the human body systems and various health conditions and medical treatments.

  2. Human Body Systems: Students examine the interactions of body systems, design experiments, investigate the structures and functions of the human body.

  3. Medical Interventions: Students investigate a variety of interventions involved in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases as they follow the lives of a fictitious family.

  4. Biomedical Innovation: In this capstone class, students apply their knowledge and skills to solve problems and design innovative solutions for health challenges of the 21st century.


We have once again been named Best High School and Best Athletic Program on the Westside by The Argonaut Newspaper.

The Engineering Pathway is honored to be supported by the Abbott Kinney Festival once again to support this year's physical computing projects!


We proudly partner with the MESA Engineering program at USC. As a result our student are mentored by USC engineering professors and gain and extra-edge when applying to college and for internships.
