The state has directed all school districts in Florida to keep schools closed through the end of the school year due to concerns over the coronavirus. More information is available on our Coronavirus Information page.
Hillsborough County Public Schools is proud and excited to see 21 of its Magnet Schools recognized by the Magnet Schools of Merit Award program.
The dedication among the Magnet Lead Teachers at each of these award winning schools, as well as the hard work of the administrators, teachers, students and families is truly exceptional. Earning this recognition is no easy feat and we celebrate the commitment to excellence each of these schools have shown.
The top category is the Magnet School Merit Award of Excellence; the second category is the Magnet School Merit Award of Distinction.
These 21 awards are one of the highest totals earned by Magnet Schools in the history of Hillsborough County Public Schools!
The district also had more than 78% of its applying Magnet Schools receive awards. That’s one of the highest percentages in the country… Especially among large districts.
