Wonderland Gifted/High Ability Magnet Center enrolls 246 first through fifth grade students from across the city of Los Angeles. As part of LAUSD’s student integration program and the district’s Gifted and Talented Education program, our magnet provides these gifted students with an academically accelerated education that emphasizes complexity and differentiated learning.
Teams of teachers work in close collaboration to design units of study that engage our magnet students in project based learning activities. We strive to develop higher order thinking processes and provide students opportunities to produce work that displays their learning in novel ways. Starting in grade two, magnet students learn in departmentalized settings lead by a pair of team-teachers specializing in math/science and language arts/social studies to emphasize depth over breadth in learning.
