Success Secret:
Our Magnet provides a college experience in a high school setting by pushing students to be creators and critical thinkers, rather than mere passive consumers of knowledge. In the Lower Division program (Grades 9 & 10), teachers provide students with the prerequisite knowledge, skills, and habits of mind they need to be successful in their ongoing academic endeavors. Students learn how to read and write like scholars, and to think like artists, scientists, historians, and mathematicians. Coursework in the Upper Division program (Grades 11 & 12) pushes students to find connections between the disciplines, and to synthesize knowledge gained from examining multiple, and often divergent, perspectives. Seminar-style classes foster closer collaboration between students and teachers, and inquiry-driven projects encourage students to see themselves as skilled researchers, creative problem-solvers, and lifelong learners.
