About Us

Mid-City's Prescott School of Enriched Sciences Magnet, home of the Mountain Lions, is a 1st-5th Grade magnet elementary school in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).  Located in the historic West Adams district, our school is located on a beautiful and charming campus with an edible garden and outdoor classroom, mature trees, microforest, a pollinator-attracting California native plant garden, and a grassy quad where the majority of our events are held. We are one of the first four magnets formed in LAUSD as a School of Enriched Sciences Magnet with a thematic focus on the Biosphere. Our school has gone through several variations as a K-12, K-8 and now 1-5 grade elementary school. The current school program configuration is the result of a $3,000,000 grant made by the U.S. Department of Education between 2010-2013 to create an environment of learning for the future scientists and mathematicians of the world.
