In Greenville county, Magnet Academies were established in 1996 to help inner city schools with declining enrollment, achievement, and increasing minority isolation. Today, magnet academies attract top students, as well as talented teachers who bring innovative ideas. These distinguished teachers are chosen because of their specialized skills and commitment to each program's focus. The Board of Trustees and Administration are committed to the success of the Select Schools Program. Additional funding has been allocated for teaching positions, instructional equipment and supplies, and staff development. Click here for district information and application procedures. Students who reside in a Magnet Academy attendance area are automatically enrolled in that school. If you reside outside our attendance area, you can apply for admission to our school. Selection is based on the following criteria: student interest in the specific school program, previous academic achievement, attendance, and discipline record.

Behaving appropriately is an essential aspect of learning. Without a disciplined atmosphere, the teacher cannot teach effectively and the learner can not learn. Using PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports), this system is designed to teach the desired behavior through positive interventions rather than using punishment as a single approach. The interventions are designed to teach the student how to respond to difficult situations, as well as supporting appropriate student behaviors. The behavior plan is administered and practiced throughout the school. Our goal is to make universal rules that will be followed by everyone. By doing this, students know exactly what to expect and how to act when in another teacher's classroom or in related arts. Students will know the consequences at all times.
We strongly believe that parental involvement and support are essential to the effectiveness of this school discipline plan and are committed to a school environment where the principal, teachers and parents are continuously and wholeheartedly working together for our children. We are attempting to provide a safe environment in which students can learn, feel valued and develop responsibility for their own behaviors and academic progress.
