Magnet Overview

Magnets have been established at elementary, middle and high schools to provide an opportunity for students to engage in intensive study in specific areas. Magnets offer the opportunity for students to discover their talents and explore their interests while focusing on academic rigor.

OCPS magnet programs reflect the diversity of the district and are designated to attract students from across the district. Complete information will be listed in the school's magnet description.

High school magnets provide unique personalized learning communities. These programs of study are aimed at increasing student achievement and permit a student to focus on interest, talents or career goals. Middle and elementary magnets provide students the opportunity to participate in challenging experiences that engage them in learning.
