Arlington Magnet Schools

s a part of the public school system, magnet schools differ from charter and private schools. In regular public schools, students are generally zoned based on their home address - they attend the nearest school to their home. School zones do not include magnet schools. Even though magnet schools are part of the public school system, they are controlled and governed by the same school board and administration as public schools. According to Magnet Schools of America, a magnet school is uniquely characterized by its focus on a specific curricular area. Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM), arts, and vocational or career paths are common themes.

Magnet schools also use the Montessori approach to learning. In Montessori schools, children are viewed as naturally curious and eager to learn. As a result, Montessori schools foster learning environments in which children play an active role in the educational process. A magnet school emphasizes hands-on learning based on inquiry and performance.  As well as receiving more funding for their students, supplies, teachers, and educational programs, magnet schools differ from other public schools in obtaining additional financing.
