Magnet Program Description

Woodlawn High School proudly offers an accelerated and rigorous Academic Magnet component to prepare students for college (career) related paths. Magnet schools are built on the foundation of the five pillars of education:

  1. High-Quality Instruction
  2. Academic Excellence
  3. Family and Communication Partnerships
  4. Diversity
  5. Innovative Curriculum

Our Magnet program has a focused theme of ACCELERATED ACADEMICS through Advanced Placement(AP) courses and Dual Enrollment(DE) courses. Magnet schools are typically more “hands on- minds on” and use an approach to learning that is inquiry or performance/project based. We use state, district, or Common Core standards in all subject areas, however, all are taught within the overall theme of preparing students for college(career) related paths. Our average class is 25 students per class.
