MPS Magnet Staff
Magnet schools were created in the 1960s and 1970s to voluntarily promote school integration and improve the quality of America's educational system through innovative curricula and classroom instruction (Magnet Schools of America). The magnet programs of the Montgomery Public Schools (MPS) offer educational choices for children in Kindergarten through the twelfth grade. These specialized programs are designed around themes that focus on the talents and abilities of students. The magnet programs offer expanded educational choices to Montgomery's youth and invite more remarkable personal growth and exploration opportunities.
While each magnet has its unique characteristics, all share a commitment to providing innovative and stimulating instruction.
Any questions, comments, or concerns can be submitted via email to email@example.com. Responses may take up to 48 hours.
