Our School

Vision and Mission

Lomita STEAM Magnet was one of the first schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to participate in student integration through magnet programs. In 1978, Lomita Elementary School was changed to Lomita Fundamental Magnet. Since its participation in the magnet program, the school evolved from Lomita Math & Science Magnet to Lomita STEAM Magnet. The rich diversity of students who attend this school has been consistent through the years.

From the moment you step foot on campus, cultural diversity and school pride is evident. The beautiful rainbow of students reflect what our global society aspires to be. Our school’s diversity has a wide variety of perspectives, that when coupled with student-centered classroom instruction leads to a cross-cultural array of ideas. We are recognized for our ability to raise student achievement across various underrepresented populations. Being such a dynamic school, we have grown to be responsive in offering all students a rigorous academic program. We strive to continuously improve and refine our craft by focusing on building teacher capacity thereby ensuring all students can achieve.

Our mission is to educate students of diverse backgrounds to effectively communicate and cooperate with others, gather and use information intelligently, and make responsible decisions. In addition to balanced literacy, students will be exposed to a rigorous curriculum using a Workshop Model with special emphasis in the areas of science, technology, engineering, art and math.
