Choosing the Best Education  

In today’s Information Age, parents are becoming increasingly aware of the many choices afforded them in regard to their children’s education. We know that you want your child to receive the highest quality education available. Read on, and discover how ABC Unified School District’s Magnet Schools are affecting children in our community.

What is a Magnet School?

A Magnet School is one that is chosen by its district to “specialize” in a chosen field or two. Magnet Schools were developed so that children who show aptitude or interest in certain areas such as math, science, engineering, computer science, or the arts have a place to develop those interests to prepare for college. All magnet schools provide programs that are aligned with the California Core Content Standards.

Magnet Schools are available to families residing inside or outside of the ABCUSD boundaries. Families are welcome to apply for their children to attend one of our outstanding magnet schools.
