Magnet Schools & Programs

Our magnet schools and programs foster higher achievement, encourage creativity, open the door to other cultures, and provide an array of educational choices that focus on the specific needs, interests, and abilities of our students. Students accepted into magnet programs leave their regular schools in order to study in the specialty area of their choice.
