What is a magnet school?
A magnet school is a tuition-free elementary, middle, or high school of choice that offers specialized courses in addition to the standard core curriculum academics.
Magnet schools are a part of public school systems within the United States and operate under the same administration and school board as traditional public schools.
Unlike traditional public schools, however, magnet schools differ in that students are not zoned into their school based on their home location, but rather enrolled by being a part of a broader school district and by way of an application process.
What are the advantages of a magnet school education?
Benefits of attending a magnet school include:
- A head-start on college or career success
- Diverse student body with a focus on inclusive communities
- Hands-on, project-based learning
- Innovative modes of instruction like Reggio Emilia
- Smaller class sizes that promote student excellence and interests
