welcome to our school!

The Zoo Magnet Center is a small high school magnet program in Griffith Park.  A satellite magnet of North Hollywood High School, the Zoo Magnet provides approximately 300 LAUSD students from across the city unique educational opportunities.  The challenging college preparatory experience is focused on animal studies and biological sciences.

Our classrooms open out on a living laboratory that includes the L.A. Zoo and Botanical Gardens, L.A. River ecosystem, Autry National Center and the natural world of Griffith Park. The human scale of the Zoo Magnet campus supports an inclusive school community where students and teachers learn together and no one is lost in the crowd.


Welcome Class of 2019
Welcome new students to the NHHS Zoo Magnet.

Diplomas and Sashes
The diplomas and the Handmade Senior Project Presentation Award Zebra Print Sashes will be given to students on the NHHS campus on Monday after 9am (although conflicting reports claim they will be passed out at the Zoo Magnet at 8am- yay for communication).  We look forward to seeing you there and making sure you get your sashes.  You worked hard and earned them.  

Senior Project Presentation Awards
Good evening Class of 2015. I would first like to congratulate everyone on fantastic senior projects. The ones that I did get to see were amazing. Also, I would like to apologize for the incident that occurred today in Ms. Gottlieb's with your awards. Those were to be passed out on the day of the presentations, but unfortunately they weren't ready. The Senior Projects Recognition Committee didn't realize that there was a policy at NHHS regarding sashes before we had these custom ones ordered. We however, wanted to award all of you for your hard work.
Today, the SPRC met with principal Rosales to negotiate a deal. You see, a particular parent is having a problem with you having the sashes even though this parent doesn't have a child in the senior class. We managed to work out a way that you may have your award for your senior projects, but once again you won't be able to wear them for the graduation ceremony. The committee kind of had our hands tied.
Monday, when you pick up your diplomas, please make sure to pick up your award too. Each award has a name on the tag, and there is one for each of you. I personally wished that someone would ask all of you what you wanted? Ultimately, it isn't our day, but yours. Here's a picture for everyone that didn't get to see them.

Once again, congratulations class of 2015!
