Differences Between Magnet and Choice Schools
- Magnet Schools: offer diverse and inclusive educational opportunities for grades K-12 through specialized programs in the arts, stem/steam, international baccalaureate, dual immersion, and career pathways.
- Choice schools: allow parents to choose from their residential schools, another school inside their zone, or a magnet school.
- At every school, students are led by teachers and staff members dedicated to helping them grow as students and people.
