Excellence in Magnet Schools & Districts
Providing technical assistance and program development
Welcome to NIMSL
Innovation and preparation are as important to our schools, teachers and administrators as they are to our children. Magnet Schools of America (MSA) founded The National Institute for Magnet School Leadership (NIMSL) as the technical assistance arm whose mission is to provide professional expertise to MSA member districts and their schools.
“AACPS’ partnership with MSA and NIMSL has changed the trajectory of Magnet Programs in our district. I look forward to continuing to reap the benefits of our membership in MSA.”
Dr. Kevin Hamlin, Director, Anne Arundel County Public Schools
“In Richland School District Two, we have found that utilizing services from the National Institute of Magnet School Leadership (NIMSL) has been instrumental in the success of sustaining our magnet programs.”
Barbara Turner, Director, Richland School District Two
“NIMSL has provided exceptional PD that took our schools to the next level. NIMSL Consultants are very professional and worked well with our team. Very happy!”
Francesca VerPloegh, Director of Innovation, Albuquerque Public Schools
“NIMSL has provided an invaluable resource this year. More than coaching, more than strategic planning, and more than magnet-specific insight into building sustainable systems, MSA became an actual partner with us in our work. Instead of giving us another set of concepts to learn or practices to adopt, MSA worked hard to learn about each school’s unique theme, goals, and community dynamics to develop a custom-made plan based around our needs. I can’t recommend them highly enough!”
Jon Wren, MSAP Team, Metro Nashville Public Schools
