Magnet Applications


The CHOICES application is used to apply to the Magnet Program. Applications are available at LAUSD schools and Los Angeles Public Libraries, or you can apply online at

Applications must be submitted to the Office of Student Integration Services by the deadline.

Late applicants will be placed on a waiting list, which applies to that particular school year. You must reapply for the following year.

Parents are advised not to put any school on their Magnet application that they don't want their child to attend, because LAUSD may accept your child into any choice you list. If your only choice is Palms, list only Palms on your Magnet application.

For 2019-2020, Palms had about 162 Magnet openings for 6th grade students. The number changes from year to year.

Sample Choices Applications
  • English (late application for 2018-2019)
  • Spanish (late application for 2018-2019)
