Magnet School Certification

San Antonito STEM Magnet Elementary School was recognized for receiving Magnet School Certification by the Magnet Schools of America.

The certification process includes a detailed application and rigorous evaluation to ensure the National Magnet School standards of excellence and the five pillars of magnet schools that are essential elements of a high-quality magnet program are upheld.  The five pillars are diversity, innovative curriculum and professional development, academic excellence, high-quality instructional systems, and family and community partnerships.  Schools must provide specific examples of how they are promoting school diversity, closing the achievement gap, integrating a theme-based curriculum throughout the school, and encouraging parent and community involvement.  Certification is designed to recognize the hard work of the best magnet schools in the nation and to help them as they grow.  Congratulations to San Antonito’s students, staff, and community for becoming certified as a magnet school!
