Neighborhoods are redefined when we talk about magnet schools. A magnet school neighborhood includes students from other communities who have the same interests. What you will learn and how you will learn it frames the neighborhood in which you choose to learn and grow. It may be filled with future artists or dancers, scientists or technicians, diplomats or Rhodes Scholars.
There are no academic or other criteria for student selection. All students who apply will be placed if there are seats available. A lottery will determine placement if more students apply than seats available.
