Magnet Schools

Magnet schools are public schools of choice, so named because they “attract” students to their specific educational focus or theme. Magnet schools give parents and guardians the opportunity to choose quality programs for their children throughout the state of Connecticut. Magnet schools allow students to focus on specific talents or interests while studying a challenging core curriculum of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and languages in a diverse environment.
Each RESC manages a variety of Magnet schools for member districts.
