  • The purpose of our Magnet/Specialty programs provide students opportunities that are not available in other schools. These programs attract students from outside the neighborhood attendance zones, are instructionally different and offer a variety of courses and opportunities. The schools with these programs offer core curriculum instruction, enriched academic courses, specialized curriculum, instructional strategies, and/or additional curricular, cocurricular, or extracurricular activities. Students interested in attending schools of choice (magnet/specialty schools) must access those schools through an application process.
