Expectations of the Performing Arts Department:
As ELAPA Magnet is a performing arts school, there is an expectation that all students will perform in culminating performance assignments as part of demonstrating mastery of the standards in their performing arts courses. Evening and weekend performances are considered essential tasks for all students to demonstrate mastery of their learning.
Torres East LA Performing Arts Magnet offers coursework in the Arts, Media, and Entertainment sector of the California Technical Education program focusing on the Production and Managerial Arts pathway. This coursework prepares students for success in college programs and careers as performers and directors, technicians and designers. Our CTE classes aim to share with students the love for and discipline in art that leads to successful and fulfilling careers. Students will build the tools and confidence needed to tackle and triumph over challenges in all areas of their lives.
