Meet the Principal

Dr. Hill

Welcome to Altadena Arts Magnet Home of the Cougars!

As the proud principal of this esteemed National Certified Demonstration Arts Magnet School, it brings me immense joy to welcome you to our website.  Here at Altadena Arts Magnet (AAM), we are dedicated to academic excellence, character development, creative expression, and the holistic growth of our students.  I am genuinely excited about the journey ahead and the opportunity to work alongside you in shaping the future of our students. Together, we will create a nurturing and inspiring educational community where every child can flourish and succeed.

AAM has a highly sought after  French Dual Language Immersion Program (FDLIP). Students who participate in the French Dual Language Immersion Program at AAM master academic subjects in both English and French, providing students with an academic and career advantage as they become global citizens.

Through a rigorous and engaging curriculum, personalized support, and a wide range of extracurricular opportunities, we strive to equip our students with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Our school is a vibrant hub of creativity, where students are encouraged to care for others and exercise social awareness. We are SEL grounded and a kindness certified school as well.  Whether it's through visual arts, performing arts, music, dance, or theater, our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to nurturing every student and providing them with the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to succeed.

I invite you to explore our website  or join us on a school  tour to learn more about our various programs, talented staff, and the many ways in which we celebrate artistic excellence and diversity. Whether you're a prospective student, parent, educator, or arts enthusiast, we welcome you to join our community.

Warmest regards,
