About Us

Re-Ignite Your Passion to Teach!

Are you an outstanding and innovative teacher with high expectations? Perhaps you have a background in the visual or performing arts? Do you want to bring your passion for teaching and the arts together with a dedicated faculty of like-minded individuals? Then ArTES Magnet could be a perfect fit for you. ArTES (Art Theatre Entertainment School), a teacher-led Magnet that is a California Gold Ribbon School, a Title I Academic Achieving School Award winner, and one of the few Arts Schools Network’s “Exemplary Art Schools” in America. Located at the new Cesar Chavez Learning Academies in San Fernando, ArTES is a 500-student visual and performing arts high school Magnet in LAUSD, where all students choose to attend the school, and courses employ arts integration and cross-curricular teaching (training provided). We are a School of the Future and every student and teacher has an iPad. 

ArTES employs a 6x2 block schedule. In addition to their regular course load, all teachers will have a College Prep Seminar every day but Friday, when students are released at 1:25 for staff PD. As part of a teacher-led faculty, all teachers are expected to actively participate in the running of our programs as sponsors, advisors, and committee members. We all sign an Election-to Work Agreement that outlines our expectations for each other to put in hours and duties above and beyond the standard contract, and participate in summer and winter professional development. 

If you’re the kind of teacher we’re looking for, you already do this. Imagine being on a team where everyone pitches in to ensure the success of our school – that’s ArTES Magnet!
