Welcome to San Jose Highly Gifted Magnet

San Jose Highly Gifted Magnet school gives children of extraordinary intelligence an opportunity to learn, grow and develop to their maximum potential. The Highly Gifted Magnet schools in Los Angeles are one of the few programs in the US designed for children with IQ of 145+.  These students have unique intellectual, social and emotional needs not addressed in regular “gifted” classrooms. San Jose HG Magnet brings together specialized teachers, challenging curriculum and compatible peers to ensure a meaningful education in a supportive environment.
