    Magnet schools give students the chance to attend schools that focus on themes or career areas of special interest to the student. More than 50 schools offer over 30 programs ranging from culinary arts and Montessori to computer science and the medical professions. Students can often follow the same magnet theme from elementary to middle and high school. Transportation is provided within established guidelines.
     

    Students who enroll in magnet programs at Darnell-Cookman, James Weldon Johnson, Kirby-Smith, LaVilla School of the Arts, Frank H. Peterson, Paxon School for Advanced Studies, A.
