DPS Magnet Schools

  • magnet  
     
    Nearly half of all schools in DPS are magnets -- which means an extraordinary number of choices for families and their students. Our magnet schools showcase special programming, small sizes and/or year-round calendars, and operate at all levels from K-12.
     
    DPS Magnet Schools serve specific purposes for our school district.  The three purposes are included in the Magnet Guiding Principles adopted by the Board of Education in August of 2011:
    • Utilize school facilities effectively
    • Promote school diversity
    • Provide diverse and relevant program offerings throughout the district that meet student interest and provide expanded learning opportunities
