Magnet Schools

Magnet schools are another schooling option beyond public, private or charter schools. By definition, magnet schools are public schools that have specialized curriculum or foci, such as academics, diversity, music, or arts. Magnet school funding begins with the school system and is supplemented by private funds, donations and grants.

Many times companies or foundations with specific interests in the specialization provided by a certain school will donate funds and support to that magnet school. Some citizens like the choices given to students by having magnet schools while others feel that the draw of such specialized schools takes away many ideal students from the neighborhood schools. Students who are interested in a particular curriculum or field of study appreciate the focus and opportunities offered above and beyond their neighborhood schools.
