Magnet Program

  • Program Overview

    Our magnet program is focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). We are a school-wide program and serve all students in grades Kindergarten through Grade 5. Students receive instruction from specialists on a rotational schedule for 55 minutes in the areas of math & engineering, and environmental science. Our instructional programming engages students in problem-solving and independent critical-thinking while emphasizing laboratory exploration and hands-on activities.
