Today's ATM

The Applied Technology Magnet at Lakewood High School is digital! Students who are interested in technology should choose ATM at Lakewood. The ATM program allows students to learn how people interact with technology and create projects that illustrate that connection. Students can build a computer, program an Arduino, code a Vex robot, create a product, and simulate it using 3D printers or laser cutters. ATM's focus is on Informatics, the practice of living, learning, playing, and creating in tomorrow's digital world. ATM offers students the opportunity to receive college credit while attending high school or concurrently enroll at Long Beach City College. Students who graduate from ATM are ready to participate in today's digital world and find the solutions for tomorrow's challenges.
