Join us on a journey to Catch a Rising Star during the 35th National Conference on Magnet Schools April 26-30, 2017 at the Westin Bonaventure Los Angeles.
The national conference will be hosted by the Los Angeles Unified School District. LAUSD is the second largest school district in the country. It enrolls more than 557,000 students. Currently, over 70,000 students attend one of the district's 214 magnet programs.
During the conference, in addition to visiting LAUSD's award winning magnet schools, we will hold numerous professional development sessions that will cater to all magnet school professionals and grade levels. The session strands will focus on the five pillars of magnet schools.
The conference will also feature keynote presentations, awards ceremonies, student performances, scholarship announcements, and vendor exhibitions. Through our national merit awards program, MSA will also recognize the accomplishments of our nation's most exemplary magnet schools.
We promise, MSA Los Angeles 2017 will be an unforgettable experience!
