STEAM Magnet School
Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics
The STEAM Magnet was established in 1981 as a Magnet Center on the Campus of Narbonne High School. Our program emphasizes Mathematics and Science. Teachers promote a challenging academic program, encouraging students to achieve their maximum potential. Our 480 Magnet Students maintain excellent attendance and consistently score higher on SBAC and SATs. Our purpose is to maintain Narbonne High School STEAM Magnet as one of the top-performing schools in LAUSD.
One could think of the STEAM 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 STEAM 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! The map link to the left shows the highlighted STEAM classes on campus.
Because we are a STEAM Magnet, students enrolling should be prepared to embark on a slightly more rigorous curriculum. Core classes (History, English, Science, and Mathematics) are Honors level, and students are required to take Math AND Science each semester they are enrolled here. This exceeds the graduation requirements but better prepares students for the next step into a university. For this reason, we highly recommend that students have a Middle School G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher. Students may also be asked to agree to the Magnet Honor Code in order to support the integrity of our students. Check out the STEAM course chart link to the left, along with an explanation of Advanced Placement courses available to our students.
Students may also opt to take college courses while they are still in High School! Narbonne offers 2-3 courses per semester after school on our campus. Typically they are electives that will earn credit from Harbor College! What's more, those students who are especially motivated can take courses over the summer at local community colleges tuition-free! Most of our students graduate having already earned college credit!
Fall 2021 ENRICHMENT COURSES: LAUSD is offering more than 20 enrichment courses for students wishing to earn even more credits. Go to the website HERE and scroll down to the section for high school. Students can take courses ranging from Animation to Graphic Design and Environmental Studies!
For those needing some extra assistance, tutoring is available both formally and informally. Most of our teachers remain in their rooms during nutrition and lunch, assisting students, hosting club meetings, or simply chatting with students. It is rare to find a STEAM classroom not occupied! Designated teachers are compensated to tutor after school (particularly in Math) a couple of days per week, and the Boys and Girls Club generously hosts regular tutoring sessions. Narbonne has also hosted tutors from UCLA, CSU Long Beach, and more.
Boys & Girls Club Sponsored: Monday - Friday from 3:11 - 6:11pm in Rm: B8
Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:00pm to 7:00pm.
Use the link below to log in and get help with any English, Math, Science, Social Studies or World Languages. Our own Narbonne teachers will be available to help you complete homework or class projects, study for tests, write essays, or clarify concepts in the curriculum. Come as often as you want and stay as long as needed. See the flyer on the left side of the screen or go to the link below.
As mentioned above, athletics, clubs, and performances are schoolwide. Students have the opportunity to participate in the full range of activities at Narbonne. In addition, the STEAM Magnet occasionally hosts events for its own students. Please see the link to the left for a list of NHS clubs.
Dedication and diligence pay off! We are so proud of our students! STEAM students are among the highest achievers at Narbonne! STEAM students have been NHS valedictorians for 8 of the past 10 years. More than 50% of our students make Honor Roll each semester, and most importantly 100% of our seniors have graduated for the past 5 years! Our students rank 4th out of ALL High Schools in the South District in students meeting A-G college requirements.

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 to an interactive map 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:
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
Vaccination Clinic at NHS:
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.
STEAM STUDENT SPRINGS INTO ACTION!
Senior Jewel Corral noticed that students in her community needed school supplies and sprang into action! She contacted school and district officials, approached local businesses, and secured the assistance of the LAPD. Her efforts resulted in donations from the .99Stores, Salvation Army, Staples, the Harbor City Neighborhood Council, Narbonne families, and alumni. Costumed volunteers from Narbonne High, President Ave, and Normont Elementary Schools filled and distributed more than 1,000 backpacks of materials for students to use in their classes. Our gratitude goes out to Jewel, the volunteers, and local businesses, and the LAPD who contributed to making this such a successful event!
The backpack event conintued this year with even more success. Thanks to the generous contributions of our donors, 1500 backpacks filled with school supplies were donated to local families just before school began! We hope to make this a yearly event! What a great example of what the community can do when they pull together!
