Magnet Schools of America (MSA) recently announced the 2016 national merit award recipients. The national association recognized 258 public magnet schools and programs located in 19 states.
Magnet Schools of America supports the leaders and teachers of magnet and theme-based schools. It also promotes the development of new magnet programs and public schools of choice.
This year, 371 schools applied for national merit awards. This made 2016 the most competitive year in the award program’s history.
Todd Mann lauds the recipients. Mann is the MSA executive director.
“These schools are making a positive impact on the lives of children,” said Mann. “The schools provide unique learning experiences while preparing students for the challenges of the future. The schools are helping students develop critical skills needed to be college ready.”
MSA established two award categories: Magnet Schools of Excellence and Magnet Schools of Distinction. The top category is the Magnet Schools of Excellence Award. This is awarded to a group of select magnet schools. Kujawa Education Center received the School of Excellence Award in 2013.
This is a competitive program where a panel of educators scores the applications. Visit the Magnet Schools of America website to view the complete list of winners.
Magnet Schools of America will recognize the Merit Award recipients at the national conference. The conference is set for May 3-7 in Miami, Florida.
