Van Nuys High School
Home of the Wolves!
Medical Careers Magnet
The Medical Magnet program serves as an experiential exploration of the diverse opportunities within the healthcare field. Through our partnerships with Northridge Hospital Medical Center and Valley Presbyterian Hospital, students attend seminars and participate in job shadowing at the hospitals while developing charity and compassion as they deal with patients and staff during their hospital experiences. Students are imminently prepared for university programs as they enter the medical and/or healthcare fields. They have a comprehensive understanding of the diverse medical professions that await, and the compassion and heart necessary to provide exceptional healthcare in their chosen careers.
Consistently ranked as one of America's Best High Schools, Van Nuys HS has one of the largest Advanced Placement programs in the state with consistently high exam pass rates in LAUSD. Since 1995, our SAT scores have remained amongst the highest in the district, according to US News and World Report. Van Nuys is a Silver Academic Achievement school. We are exceedingly proud that our graduates are regularly accepted into the most competitive universities in the nation. There are many opportunities for students to have a well-rounded educational experience, preparing them for future success.
