About Us

Located minutes from the heart of the business and financial center of Los Angeles, Downtown Magnets High School began as the Downtown Business Magnet (DBM), a component of LAUSD’s expanding voluntary integration program. When the Electronic Information Magnet (EIM) was created in 1994, DBM adopted the name “Downtown Magnets” to incorporate both magnets in its name.

Our Vision

All students are able to achieve high standards of learning and character.
Every member of the school’s community has the primary responsibility of supporting and ensuring high standards of student learning and character development.
