What is a Magnet School?
Students ordinarily go to the public school nearest them. Magnet schools
are public schools without school boundaries. Each has something unique to
offer that you won't find in traditional schools, whether it's a particular
focus on technology, the arts, or a stimulating curriculum designed especially
for gifted students.
Because of high demand in many schools and grade levels, admission is based
on a lottery system.
