Submitted by Clifford Math and Technology Magnet
Clifford Math and Technology Magnet is in its first year as a specialized school for the Los Angeles Unified School District. Clifford joins only 210 magnet schools out of the 1,235 schools in the district. The LAUSD School Board approved the plan put together by the school faculty to focus on using technology to advance mathematical thinking and using project based learning activities to engage students. Clifford’s instructional plan is on their school webpage.
Along with a strong language arts, math and technology program, Clifford offers an arts program through the district with credentialed, expert art teachers. The school also funded a physical education teacher to ensure that students have a well-rounded school experience.
Through a rigorous hiring process, three experienced teachers joined the veteran staff at Clifford. These highly effective teachers are ready to implement the approved magnet plan.
With awards such as being a National Blue Ribbon School and a California Distinguished School, Clifford becoming a magnet school has attracted much attention from its community and those outside the community. The student enrollment has increased 11% from last year. With one class per grade level and a maximum school capacity of 188 students, parents are encouraged to apply this year before space is no longer available.
Clifford Math and Technology Magnet school staff, parents and students are excited to get the year started!
