claraschalkboard asked: What Is meant by the term 'magnet school'? Confused here. Thanks!
“Magnet schools are public schools with specialized courses or curricula. “Magnet” refers to how the schools draw students from across the normal boundaries defined by authorities (usually school boards) as school zones that feed into certain schools.”

On a side note, often times magnet schools have an application and interview process put in place to attract students interested in whatever the school specializes in, such as: science, technology, international relations, etc.
