Sylmar first opened in 1961. Sylmar Magnet School opened September 13, 1994, serving 396 students annually.[2]

Athletics[edit]

Sylmar's athletic program has flourished in the Los Angeles City Section. Particularly in football, the Spartans have won two city titles under former head coach Jeff Engilman in 1992 and 1994. Since then, the Spartans have had plenty of 10+ win seasons making playoffs but, have fallen short of advancing to the championship games. Jeff Engilman retired from coaching in 2003 with London Woodfin, the offensive coordinator, taking the reigns. Woodfin's first season as head coach in 2004 was a success with the team going 9-3 losing to Dorsey High School 55-13 in the playoffs. The closest Sylmar has gotten to making the championship game was in 2005, losing to Taft High School 48-28 in the semi-finals when Sylmar finished the season 12-1. Sylmar had running back CJ Gable at the time. In 2014, Slymar Football Team made it to the Divison 2 championship game, losing 58-31 to Hamilton High School. Has two City Division-I baseball titles, 1973 and 1980.
