Community’s teachers are vibrant and maintain a challenging learning atmosphere all year through. They collaborate to plan the instructional program and regularly participate in profession development classes. Teachers are leaders, and are the most important part of our school.
Our support staff includes; Office Administrators, Cafeteria and Custodial Staff, Teacher’s Aides, Magnet Coordinator, Resource Specialist, School Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapist, Adapted PE Teacher, Teacher for the Physically Disabled, Enrichment Teacher, Drama, and a Librarian.
Community Magnet School currently has an enrollment of about 460 children. These students come to Community from all over the District. They are dropped off at school or ride one of our 10 buses.
Class size in Community’s Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classes is 20 students; and Grades 4th and 5th average 34 students. Two or more classrooms are provided for each grade level.
All of our teachers team-teach, so your child will have experiences with all teachers on the grade level. At the end of each year the teachers at each grade level meet to create equal classes for the following year. Factors considered in class placement include balance of gender, ethnicity, language ability, academic ability, gifted/talented identification, behavior and social interactions. The principal selects which teacher is assigned to each class. Parents will be notified by mail over the summer of their child’s class placement.
Community Magnet School is located in Bel Air above UCLA. We have a 20-acre campus situated in a beautiful canyon that is quiet and away from the city noise. There are 26 classrooms and the office complex. We have a computer lab, library, art studio, auditorium and cafeteria. The kindergarten yard is separate from our 4-acre playground.
