2024 Magnet School Awards

The RFMS GMC and STEAM Magnets have been named as National Merit Schools of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America, the national association for magnet and theme-based schools. All magnet schools share the philosophy of executing innovative programs with a dedication to diversity and an unwavering commitment to academic standards – because that is the Magnet School ‘standard.’

The Magnet School of Merit Award elevates that standard to recognize member magnet schools/programs that demonstrate an exemplary commitment to academic standards, curriculum innovation, desegregation/diversity efforts, specialized teaching staff, and parent and community involvement.

The Magnet School of Distinction is the second-highest award of recognition.
