Medical and Health Careers Magnet

Northridge Middle School’s Medical and Health Careers Magnet 


Our vision at Northridge Middle School’s Medical and Health Career Magnet Center is to prepare students in meeting the challenges of the 21st century through the exploration of medical/health careers in various pathways. We emphasize high quality of work, integrity, and pride in being productive members of the community.



Our mission is for students to be able to:

  • engage in challenging curricula to foster their personal and academic explorations
  • work both independently and collaboratively as contributing members of the community and society
  • prepare for opportunities to further their education at regional medical high school magnets
  • participate in the community and society as innovative learners who value integrity and respect.

Our mission for teachers is to:

  • foster a school climate that supports diversity
  • treat all students with dignity
  • instill a growth mindset in our learning environment
  • provide a rigorous and interdisciplinary program in the medical and health career fields.

The magnet will provide students with both field-based and hands-on learning experiences. All stakeholder groups will be dedicated to the development of each student as an individual with creative and academic potential.

Three Theme- Based Pathways 

There will be three theme based pathways:

The first pathway is the Biomedical Sciences and Health Careers. Students learn about the human body and various health conditions that impact body functions, as well as the associated medical field and careers that would respond to these specific health conditions.


The second pathway is the Human Body System where students explore the structure and function of various systems such as the muscular and circulatory systems.
