3 APS Magnet Schools Earn National Recognition

Valley and Early College Academy high schools and Mission Avenue Elementary School have been named nationally certified magnet schools.

The three schools earned the distinction from Magnet Schools of America, the national association of magnet and theme-based schools, by demonstrating through evidence, reflection, and strategic action that they have established standards of excellence in their schools and fulfilled a commitment to community stakeholders.

The certification process is designed to recognize the most exemplary magnet schools in the nation and help them as they continue to grow and provide high-quality, innovative curricula and instructional programs that promote choice, equity, diversity, and academic excellence for all students.

This is a prestigious certification.

These three schools join Coronado Elementary and San Antonito Elementary as part of only 212 nationally certified magnet schools across the nation!
