Seven Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) and their programs have been named National Magnet Schools of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America, the national association for magnet and theme-based schools. These Seven Schools and their programs include: Midway Elementary School of Arts, Goldsboro Elementary Magnet School, Seminole High School Academy of Health Careers, Seminole High School-International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, Lyman High School Academy of Engineering, Milwee Middle School Pre-Engineering Magnet, Hamilton Elementary School of Engineering and Technology, and Millennium Middle School.
The Principals will be recognized and receive a National Magnet School of Distinction Merit Award on behalf of the school during an awards ceremony held at Magnet Schools of America’s 38th National Conference hosted by Clark County School District in Clark County, Nevada, April 13-17, 2020.
To receive a national merit award, members of Magnet Schools of America must submit a detailed application that is scored by a panel of educators. These schools are judged and scored on their demonstrated ability to raise student academic achievement, promote racial and socioeconomic diversity, provide integrated curricula and instruction, and create strong family and community partnerships that enhance the school’s magnet theme.
