“Magnet schools are a crucial piece of the educational reform agenda in the United States. They matter immensely.”
Since the 1960’s magnet schools have been built upon the efforts of racial diversity in the classroom. Though magnet schools are a great way to create diverse learning environments, they provide students with so much more.
Magnet Schools of America recently posted an article titled “Why Magnet Schools Still Matter.” This article covers all the high points of the high achieving magnet schools across the country.
Offering a vast number of theme-based programs, magnet schools are focused on career and college preparation. Not only do these thematic programs offer innovative curriculum they also are designed to engage students as well as parents.
Magnet schools give parents the ability to choose the school and the program that best fits their student. In a recent study by Magnet Schools of America, parent engagement was found to be 52% higher in magnet schools than in neighborhood schools.
There is no wonder that parents and students flock to magnet schools in large numbers. From 2000 to 2011, enrollment in magnet schools has grown 69%.
