    Magnet schools provide students with an opportunity 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.
