Magnet Programs

Middle School Arts Magnet at Queens Lake Middle School
The Middle School Arts Magnet for students in grades 6-8 provides enrichment and instruction in literary arts, theatre arts and rhythmic arts. Learning experiences encourage students to work independently and collaboratively to develop writing skills, prepare performances and create exhibitions that display their appreciation of the arts, develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and enhance self-esteem. Excellence in the arts is a natural extension of the middle school academic program.

Students participating in the mSAM program begin and end their day at Queens Lake Middle School for core courses, and are transported to the School of the Arts (SOA) at Bruton High School for Literary Arts, Theatre Arts, and Rhythmic Arts courses during the school day.


Waller Mill Elementary School Fine Arts
The possibilities are endless! The Fine Arts Magnet School provides students in grades 1-5 with enriched instruction in choral music, exploratory instrumental music, drama, visual arts and dance. Young artists work together to prepare performances and create exhibitions that display their appreciation of the arts while advancing critical thinking, problem-solving and enhanced self-esteem. Excellence in the arts is both a natural extension of the academic program and an integral part of the CORE curriculum.


Yorktown Elementary Math, Science, Technology
The Yorktown Elementary Magnet School provides students in first through fifth grades with enriched instructional opportunities for in-depth studies of math, science and technology in conjunction with a strong academic program in all subject areas. As young mathematicians and scientists expand their horizons, they develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Students participate in a wide variety of math, science and technology activities that facilitate the development of scientific inquiry skills. They also benefit from mentoring by real-world scientists and mathematicians. "Exploratoriums," delivered in a resource setting, integrate instructional technology and focus on various aspects of science and mathematics.
