DISD Magnet School System
The district’s magnet school system is made of magnets for high school students, academies for middle school students, and vanguards for elementary school students. The schools provide career-oriented or specialized curriculum in addition to academic subjects.
At magnets, high school students can take college preparatory courses and have access to curricula for investigating and exploring today’s career choices. Among the career areas students may explore are dentistry, forensic science, banking law, and computer engineering.
Any eligible student may apply for the magnet program. To be eligible, students must show good conduct and meet academic and assessment entrance requirements.
