Community Schools offer students a great education at a school close to home with a comprehensive academic program based on the district's standard curriculum. They may also offer additional academic opportunities and learning programs. Offerings vary by school.
Regional/District Magnet Schools offer students instruction in the district's core curriculum, but around a specialized learning program or course of study that appeals to the varied interests of our students. In general, students "articulate" (transition) from kindergarten through grade 12. Offerings vary by school.
