Forest Heights Academy of Excellence has been named a nationally certified magnet school by Magnet Schools of America (MSA), the national association for magnet and theme-based schools. Forest Heights was among 38 schools located in 12 states (AL, CA, CT, FL, GA, LA, MN, NC, NV, SC, TN, and TX) to successfully complete a rigorous nine-month evaluation process and demonstrate through evidence, reflection and strategic action that it has established the best practices entailed in the Magnet School Standards of Excellence.
The national certification process is based on the MSA Standards of Excellence and the five pillars of magnet schools: diversity, innovative curriculum and professional development, academic excellence, high-quality instructional systems, and family and community partnerships. Together, these qualities define the common elements of the strongest magnet programs.
Forest Heights will be recognized during a ceremony held at Magnet Schools of America’s 36th National Conference in Chicago, Illinois on April 25-29, 2018. #CertifiedMagnetSchool
