The Portola Highly Gifted Magnet is the only middle-school program in the Los Angeles Unified School District exclusively dedicated to the education of highly gifted students, and one of the few programs across the United States, public or private, to do so.  Students enrolled in the Portola Highly Gifted Magnet benefit from an accelerated academic curriculum taught in a nurturing environment.  In addition to core classes, Portola HGM students learn about the world around them through enrichment trips, extra-curricular activities and through its diverse student population.

  • 6th Grade Bowling Outing
      To kick off the coming school year, we’ve arranged for a 6th grade bowling mixer at neighboring Corbin Bowl right after orientation on August 7th- that way you can get everything squared away at Portola Middle School, then come over and get to know each other before school starts – the parents can mingle while kids bowl. Some of the representatives for the Portola Magnet Parents Association will be there as well to welcome you to the school and answer any questions you may have.

    Corbin Bowl has given us a reduced fee of only $14 per person, which includes shoes, two hours of bowling time and a pizza with drink lunch. 

    Place: Corbin Bowl
    located at 19616 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana, CA 91356
    Date: Monday, August 7th
    Time: 11am-1pm (right after orientation).
    Cost: $14 per 6th grader (or sibling)
