    The Magnet Bridge
     James A. Garfield Computer Science Magnet's goal is to provide a top-notch curriculum for students interested not only in computer science, but also in developing a strong sense of academic responsibility, respectful dialogue, and problem-solving skills necessary for a well-rounded, productive life. At our Computer Science Magnet, students will discover highly qualified instruction, have access to technology, and learn coding and programming skills. 



    Our computer science students
    Garfield Computer Science Magnet High School is a Magnet Center within Garfield High, with an educational emphasis on computers. Founded in September 1982, the CS Magnet has provided a top-notch curriculum for students interested in computers and in developing problem-solving skills as tools for everyday life.
    In the computer science electives students will receive instruction on Java script, word processing, spreadsheets, Internet for research and communication, presentation software, web page design, keyboarding skills, graphics, multi-media authoring and various enrichment subjects as the need and curriculum evolves.
    Our students must:
    • Take a Computer Science course each year as one of their electives. 
    • Reside either in the immediate community or within the LAUSD boundaries.
    • Strive for Excellence!
    Computer Science Class
    Provide a rigorous and college preparatory program, where students take all A-G requirements in addition to Computer Science electives. The program is designed to enable our students to achieve success at the senior-high-school level, and to gain access to post-secondary education at the university or community college level, to a technical institution or to enter a technology-oriented workplace.
