Magnet Vision:
We strive to provide a qualitatively different curriculum that will offer the strongest and broadest academic success to our multi-cultural and multi-ethnic student body. We believe that in establishing a learning experience that promotes individual responsibility and intellectual emancipation (through critical thinking and media literacy), our students will be successful in their post-secondary endeavors.
Magnet Mission:
The teachers, administrators and parents of the Humanities Magnet strive to promote the dignity and worth of ALL students. We are committed to creating an environment that maximizes achievement and encourages the appreciation of our diverse student population. By learning to recognize that which is common to the 'human' experience across cultural and temporal boundaries, our students will recognize and appreciate the shared humanity in those around them.
