Pursuing Excellence for Tomorrow's Challenges
Choice and Magnet Programs
In District Five, we believe that all students can learn, but not every student learns in the same way. Diversity of talents, interests, learning styles and backgrounds is what makes us a great community of thinkers and problem solvers.
District Five has long placed a priority on growing our academic programs through magnet and other offerings. It's a conscious decision to provide our families with the choices they need to make their students successful in school and in future careers. "Choice" is the term used to describe the opportunities provided to our students. Choice includes the option to select any school in the district that has space available to accommodate additional students or to select a magnet school or magnet program.
Whether you are choosing a non-magnet school that has capacity, one of our existing magnet schools or programs or a new Discover 5 magnet school, you can be sure that District Five is a school system where "Every Choice is a Great Choice."
