27 of our magnet schools receive national recognition

Twenty-seven magnet schools have been recognized by the Magnet Schools of America (MSA) National Merit Awards program.

 

Twelve schools have been named Schools of Excellence and 15 have been named Schools of Distinction by MSA. Last year, the district had nine Schools of Excellence and 18 Schools of Distinction. 
 
The MSA gives National Merit Awards annually to magnet schools that show a commitment to high academic standards, curriculum innovation, successful desegregation and diversity efforts and the consistent delivery of high quality educational services to all stakeholders. 
 
There are two categories of awards that have been established by MSA:
 
Magnet School of Excellence Awards are given to only a select group of magnet schools that have demonstrated the highest level of excellence in all facets of the merit award application.
Magnet School of Distinction Awards are the second level of awards and are given to magnet schools that have met all the basic requirements outlined in the merit awards scoring rubric.
