What are Magnet Schools?

Magnet schools are built on the foundation of five pillars and are free public elementary and secondary schools of choice that are operated by school districts or a consortium of districts.

Magnet Schools of America

MSA is a national nonprofit professional education association that represents and is a resource to magnet schools, parents, teachers, school boards, administrators, business leaders, community organizations and institutions of higher education for its members.

MSA Successful on Funding to Reduce Digital Divide

MSA joined with the NEA and many other education associations to advocate for funding to bridge the digital divide. Today, that effort will bear fruit as the FCC makes $7 billion available for connectivity and devices.
