A magnet school offers a new, unique and challenging way of delivering the curriculum as well as supporting students needs to expand their interests, talents and passions. These are schools of choice – children are enrolled based on their interest in the school’s theme, not based upon where they live. While a magnet school may have a general theme, students still study a complete range of subjects. Each subject is aligned to local, state or national standards of learning, but each subject is taught within the school’s theme. Our magnet schools offer innovative programming which involves a more hands-on learning environment that is inquiry and performance-based. Students in WS/FC Schools have the opportunity to continue in a magnet program from kindergarten through grade 12.Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools offers 21 magnet schools in 5 different program areas in grades K-12.
