Magnet Open House

The Van Nuys High School Magnets will be welcoming prospective families to the Open House Mixer in the Quad on Thursday, October 27 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Families will have a chance to meet current students, faculty, and staff from all three magnets: Math/Science, Medical, and Performing Arts.

“We’re envisioning parents coming in a casual setting to be able to talk to teachers and get to know what they do,” says Ms. Dawn Brown, the Magnet coordinator. “Parents will get to know what the program’s like from students, teachers, as well as some of the Magnet administration.”

“We’ll probably have a table for each department and magnet. Science Bowl and Science Olympiad will be next to each other, maybe holding mock games. Journalism [will] have their own booth. Vannaires, and Marching Band will be singing and playing as parents walk around.”

In addition to this event, Van Nuys High School has been holding Magnet Program Tours for prospective families, with a few dates left: Wednesday, October 26 from 9:00 to 10:30 AM; Thursday, October 27 from 1:00 to 2:30 PM; Thursday, November 3 from 10:30 to 12:00 PM.
