April 22, 2010 - In a test of endurance, speed, agility, and toughness, the Toughest Cadet Alive competition was held on the campus of James Monroe High School.  The physical abilities challenge pits students from the seven Department Magnet schools against each other in a day long competition.  The schools included were Monroe, Reseda, Dorsey, San Pedro, and Wilson High Schools along with Mulholland and Burbank Middle Schools, with Burbank Middle School being new to the program this year.

The police magnet program offers a rigorous curriculum geared toward preparing students for a career in law enforcement.  In addition to the basic high school requirements, magnet programs offer students specialized coursework, training, mentoring, work and volunteer opportunities.  There are approximately 1500 students currently enrolled in the seven area magnet programs.
