Perkins Recognized as a Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America!

Perkins Elementary, Center for the Arts & International Studies has once again been named a National Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America, the national association for magnet and theme-based schools.

To receive a national merit award, members of Magnet Schools of America must submit a detailed application that is scored by a panel of educators. These schools are judged and scored on their demonstrated ability to raise student academic achievement, promote racial and socioeconomic diversity, provide integrated curricula and instruction, and create strong family and community partnerships that enhance the school’s magnet theme.


Thank you, Mr. Lennox! We appreciate your hard work and ability to express (in writing) all that the Perkins Staff, Students, and Families do to make Perkins the magical place that it is!
