BETA Magnet School

 

Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology Academy

BETA’s vision is to prepare students for a bright, fulfilling future beyond high school. Our dedicated faculty providesField Trip Time! our 200 students with an enriching and challenging curriculum that prepares students for careers in business, entrepreneurship, and technology. Through a caring, encouraging environment, enriching activities, and opportunities outside of the classroom, our students will leave Narbonne career and college ready, with a strong foundation to take them wherever their dreams want them to go.

 

One could think of the BETA Magnet as Narbonne 1.5 since we are affiliated with the larger school in some ways.  Clubs, activities, and athletics are combined schoolwide.  Classes not offered in this Magnet are sometimes available to our students through the larger school.  The bell schedule is also shared with the larger school.  

 

Still, there are significant differences.  The BETA Magnet has its own faculty, classrooms, and additional funding.  We maintain smaller class sizes (30 or fewer beginning 2021-2022) which are located in one section of the school and a dedicated Magnet Office which is located in front of the Administration Building.  This office serves as a central location to meet students' and parents' needs. Both benefit by having a consistent counselor and administrator for all four years, which promotes a greater awareness of our student's academic and emotional growth.  Parents benefit by knowing precisely who to contact when they have questions, concerns, or simply need to drop something off!

Narbonne's BETA Magnet has partnered with EXP to provide paid internships to students who complete their program.  In it, students will learn the skills necessary to be successful job seekers as they embark on their journey into the future! We encourage you to look into this fantastic opportunity!

    TRANSPORTATION

LAUSD Bus

 

Students of both NHS Magnets are offered transportation if they reside outside the 5-mile radius of the school.  Typically there are 5 stops used for pick up/drop off.  Unsure whether that address qualifies?  Here is a link where you can check: https://echoices.lausd.net/Magnet/Magnet_Radius?cc=1877902  Those living outside that circle are usually provided with routing information the week prior to the start of school.  NOTE: Bus stops and times may change when students return to school following the COVID pandemic, depending on state and district requirements.

 

For those who live inside the 5-mile radius or prefer public transportation, here is a link for a Metro (TAP) Card:

COVID INFORMATION

LAUSD offers on-campus COVID testing for all NHS students.  This is done with prior parent consent and typically takes place on Thursdays and Fridays.  In addition, LAUSD is requiring that students be fully vaccinated by January 10, 2022 (sooner if the student participates in athletics and some other programs). For those still in need of a vaccination, here is a list of locations/times:

 

Schedule of Vaccination Opportunity Days for Narbonne Students

 

NHS also has scheduled two additional clinics for students and staff only on Tuesday November 2, 2021 from 12:00  to 7:00 p.m. and Tuesday, November 30th, 12:00-7:00 p.m.  Every vaccine recipient will be receiving a goodie, while supplies last!

The consent form in DailyPass allows for students 12+ to be vaccinated without an adult for the November clinics. You may make an appointment online, but walk-ins are welcome. If this is not convenient, arrangements can also be made by going to the Dept of Public Health HERE.
