Prospective Students Information

Students whose home high school is Cleveland, Granada Hills Charter, Kennedy or Monroe are eligible to apply.

A unique application process was developed and implemented to ensure equitable access to our school by students who would otherwise, in most cases, articulate from their middle schools to an overcrowded high school. Every year, during the application window (posted above), we receive an overwhelming response from the communities we serve. Our applicants are accepted with the following percentages: Cleveland 40%, Monroe 30%, Granada 15%, Kennedy 15%.

Check eligibility anytime- Interested students can confirm they live in our attendance area by using the

LAUSD SchoolFinder.


Frequently Asked Questions

1. Our Application wasn't received in mail?

Applications are accepted through the Zones of Choice Office. Mail is no longer sent out, rather parents must apply through the website for the Northwest area. Applications for the upcoming year can be found under the "Application Forms and Tour Info." section. 


2. Is there a Lottery for enrollment?

NAHS no longer does drawings. All applications are processed through the Zones of Choice Office. 


3. Is NAHS a public school?

Yes, NAHS is part of LAUSD, local district 1. However, we are unique in that our school was developed through a special partnership with Cal State University, Northridge. For field-trip purposes, the entire CSUN campus is considered to be an extension of NAHS, and no trip slips are required for students to access CSUN facilities and resources during the school day.


4. Is NAHS a Magnet School?

No, NAHS is a regular high school. Since our school is not part of the LAUSD Magnet Program, students are not entitled to transportation and must live in the specified attendance areas (see above) in the surrounding neighborhoods.
