February is National Magnet School month! This month is all about celebrating the original and largest form of public school choice, providing families with opportunities to meet the individual learning styles, talents, and interests of their children. Magnet schools were originally created as a means of voluntarily promoting school integration and improving America’s public education system.
Nationwide, there are approximately 4,340 magnet schools serving nearly 3.5 million students. Knowing that students learn differently, magnet schools focus on specialized theme-based curriculum and instruction, while still meeting all state and district academic standards. Magnet schools are public, free, and open to all students.
