Nine months and counting.
San Pedro High School new neighborhood campus, the John M. and Muriel Olguin Campus of San Pedro High School will open in August 2012, the Campus will open with 500 students, a combination of Marine Science and Mathematics Magnet students, Police Academy Magnet students, and 40 resident San Pedro High School students that are chosen by lottery. The state of the art campus will offer students opportunities to pursue their interests in the Marine Sciences and Law Enforcement.
The Palisades Residents Association, in concert with the Pt Fermin Residents Association and Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council provided SPHS and LAUSD a laundry list of questions prior to the well-attended San Pedro Education Summit, created and hosted by Dave Behar, at SPHS. The resident questions are viewable here and the written answers to the master questions have been committed to being provided to the PRA by January 31, 2012 by SPHS and the Magnet team.
To apply, prospective students must fill out a “Choices” application, available on-line at echoices.lausd.net or by picking up a paper application in the Magnet Office at San Pedro High School. In addition, 40 spots will be available for San Pedro residents who do not wish to be part of the Magnet; but, still would like to focus on the marine sciences or law enforcement at the Olguin Campus.
Among other pre-opening events and outreach, the community is invited to join the staff for an Open House, tentatively scheduled for August 9, 2012 at 6pm. If you have any questions or need additional information, please call or email Sandy Alvarenga, Magnet Coordinator 310.241.5813, firstname.lastname@example.org.
