EXTRA EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!!
According to the Los Angeles Times' comprehensive study, only 35 out of 743 schools in all of LAUSD scored an A for their arts program. Amongst those that scored an A, the middle school that ranked the best of the best was.....drumroll please.....Millikan Middle School Performing Arts Magnet!! (Need we say more?)
P.S. Ramon C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts is a high school, making Millikan the highest ranking middle school in the district.
Here's a snippet of the L.A. Times article:
PERFORMING ARTS MAGNET VS. PERFORMING ARTS ACADEMY:
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE???
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
The Performing Arts Magnet at Millikan Middle School is the heart and soul of the Performing Arts at Millikan. This Magnet proved to be so popular, with a demand for admittance so high, that the Performing Arts Academy was created to handle the overflow, and to provide even more students the opportunity to access the Performing Arts program offered by the Performing Arts Magnet.
WHAT TO DO NOW??
If you want to access the Performing Arts Program offered by the Magnet, the best way to do that is to *drumroll please* apply for the Performing Arts Magnet! This is done by going to echoices.lausd.net, filling out the application, and choosing Millikan Performing Arts Magnet. The window for the application is open between October 1, 2018 and November 9, 2018.
Get thee to echoices!
If Plan A doesn’t work, there’s still hope! You can still access the Performing Arts at Millikan via two different options.
Find out if Millikan is your neighborhood school. How do I that, you might ask? By clicking on school finder, typing in your home address, and discovering which school is your neighborhood school. If Millikan is your neighborhood school, you would then sign up for a Performing Arts Academy audition time slot, prepare your monologue and song, get ready to learn some dance moves in a mini dance class, and then wait and see if you got in. Break a leg!
If Millikan is NOT your neighborhood school - again check on school finder to find out - you can still register for the Charter Lottery. The Charter Lottery is a random selection process, literally pulling names out of a barrell, and then placing those names on a list in order of their selection. Here’s the tricky part. The auditions for the Performing Arts Academy take place BEFORE the Charter Lottery drawing. HOWEVER your audition for the Performing Arts Academy is NOT a way of getting into Millikan. This is where some people get confused. The only ways to get in to the school are:
