Advance registration is needed for science & technology magnet high school.
Clark Magnet High School offers students in Grades 9-12 a curriculum that emphasizes science and technology. The program is open to students who currently attend a Glendale Unified School District (GUSD) school or who reside in the GUSD attendance area and attend a private, parochial, or non-GUSD public school.
Approximately 300 applicants will be accepted into the upcoming 9th grade class. If the number of qualified students who apply exceeds the number of openings available, a lottery will be conducted to determine which applicants are selected. Students entering Grades 10-12 may apply; however, few if any openings in these grade levels are anticipated, and students will be placed on a waiting list. Total school enrollment is limited to about 1,100 students.
