“Magnet schools boast more parental and community involvement, more personalization through theme-based education, and specialized programs that create a shared sense of community that leads to a safer environment for learning.”
– Magnet Schools of America
Guilford County Schools is proud to offer magnet/choice programs at 23 elementary and middle schools and 24 high schools. With 66 magnet and choice programs across the district, Guilford County Schools is a nationwide leader in providing a variety of educational options for students and their parents. Designed with the belief that children learn differently and may thrive in different environments, GCS magnet programs nurture the seeds of talent and interest that exist within a child naturally, while still providing a first-rate education in traditional subject areas.
How to Apply
Virtual Choice Showcase
Instead of the one-day showcase as in previous years, the Magnet/Choice Showcase will span over a week and will take place virtually, February 1-5. Students and their families will be able to have their questions answered during interactive Q & A sessions with school principals and leaders, watch videos about the programs offered and learn more about the application process. Parents will also be able to speak with representatives from key departments such as school nutrition, student services, exceptional children, transportation, parent academy, pre-K and student information.
You can learn more about the virtual Magnet/Choice Showcase here.
