What is a Magnet School?

A public elementary, middle, or high school whose curricula are theme-based and technology-rich. Magnet school teachers are specially trained not only in theme integration but also in innovative and rigorous academic instructional methods. Magnet schools offer students opportunities to discover, explore, and refine their talents and interests while focusing on excellence in academics. Our magnet schools support the district’s mission to provide all students the knowledge and skills necessary to reach their highest potential. Our magnet philosophy maintains that magnet schools "connect kids to the real world.”
