Environmental & Natural Science Magnet

Not just college ready... College Confident

Our magnet strives to offer the students in the Environmental & Natural Science Magnet a curriculum that will prepare them to be familiar with college level research and to solve the global environmental problems of the 21st century. Students will have access to LMU research opportunities though our LMU Family of Schools relationship, outdoor learning labs such as our aquaponics system and student-sustained garden, college level research equipment for on-campus botanical and ecology studies, and complex local ecosystems like the Ballona Wetlands.

 

The teachers in the magnet, regardless of the discipline, offer environmentally themed curriculum, field trips and project opportunities.

 

The elective pathways support work or research skills in areas that support current and future environmental issues.

 

Check out the ENS Prezi Presentation in the Magnet Resources Locker.

Organic Matters

12/10/17

Our magnet specific, bimonthly newsletter "Organic Matters" is available for download here. It is also distributed to all of the teachers to give to the students in the magnet for those who would prefer a hard copy, but to help conserve paper (and reduce waste) we limit the number of copies handed out.
