Magnet Overview

 
 
The Thomas Starr King Environmental STEAM Magnet provides opportunities for students to participate in a rigorous, interdisciplinary, project-based curriculum in which environmental literacy is integrated into all subject areas. Students will also participate in specialized electives and partnership activities with community-based environmental organizations.

The instructional objectives of the program are to produce learners who are aware of local and global environmental conditions and issues; renewable resources and recycling; sustainable gardening and food sources, health and nutrition, and the importance of community involvement and community service. This is incorporated into core instruction through project-based learning, interdisciplinary studies and supplemental experiential educational opportunities in partnership with community organizations. Examples of community partnerships include:
  • Sierra Club
  • Tree People
  • Sustainable Economic Enterprises of Los Angeles (SEE-LA)
  • Enrich LA
