Jumpstart Your Child’s Education With A Magnet School

The Wake County Public School System offers students and their families the option of a magnet school education, many of which are award-winning and nationally recognized.

Magnet schools are public schools that have specialized courses of learning. WCPSS magnet schools are organized into program "pathways" from elementary to middle to high school. Program pathways include Leadership and Technology, Gifted and Talented, International Baccalaureate, and Language Immersion and Global Studies.

Magnet schools challenge students with programs tailored to their strengths and expose them to new experiences that can be carried with them for a lifetime.

With a commitment to reducing poverty, promoting school integration, maximizing school facilities and providing innovative education opportunities, a magnet school could be the right fit for your child who is about to embark upon their educational journey.
