The District offers parents two elementary magnet schools of choice: Johnson STEAM Academy (355 18th Street SE) and Kenwood Leadership Academy (3700 E. Avenue NE). Magnet schools have a focused theme and are built on the foundation of the magnet school pillars: Diversity, innovative curriculum and professional development, academic excellence, high quality instructional systems, and family and community partnerships.
They use a "hands on - minds on" approach to learning, are aligned with state and District standards, and vary the delivery of instruction by teaching the standards within the theme. Johnson STEAM Academy has a theme of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) and Kenwood Leadership Academy has a Leadership theme.
Families living outside these attendance areas may apply for the 2016-17 school year. Applications for the Magnet School Lottery will be accepted through April 1.
