    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
