magnet middle schools and magnet high schools. They are also
tuition free with a couple key differences:

from any neighborhood in the city (hence the name). This generally
results in a more diverse mix of social, economic, ethnic, and racial
• Each magnet offers something different than a traditional public
school, be it emphasis on certain subjects, a particular educational
approach, or theme.
• Some magnets require students to meet certain academic, skill,
behavior and/or attendance requirements.
• Advanced application is required and because of their popularity,
spots are allocated by lottery.
