Marine Magnet School Projected at Angels Gate

The Los Angeles Unified School District is going forward with plans for a marine science magnet school at Angels Gate Cultural Center.

Following a board vote this week, the district will conduct environmental studies for a possible 810-student school, down from the 1,200-student campus originally proposed.

Plans call for the campus to house San Pedro High School’s marine science program. Earlier plans for an entirely separate high school have been scrapped.

Residents of surrounding neighborhoods vocally objected to the possibility of a new high school, citing traffic and noise among their concerns.

Some neighbors remain opposed to any additional school construction at Angels Gate.

A handful of San Pedro residents went to downtown L.A. to testify at the LAUSD meeting, according to the Daily Breeze.
