50 years of specialized programs
There are 4,340 Magnet schools in the USA. With continued funding, more parents will have the opportunity to choose the public Magnet school that best suits their child’s learning needs.
As the single largest form of public school “choice,” Magnet schools are visionary, innovative, and open to all students regardless of zip code. With 4,340 schools educating 3.5 million+ students nationwide, each school typically focuses on individually themed curricula.
Magnet Schools attract children of various socio-economic backgrounds, race, and academic achievement levels. They are free and open to anyone; due to high demand, most schools determine student acceptance by a random selection system. Magnet schools are accountable to state standards and, in many cases, exceed those standards.
