Focused on academic excellence and personal growth, students are empowered to pursue their interests and become successful, knowledgeable global citizens.

What makes a magnet school different?

Pursue Individual Interests

Magnet schools offer the standard FWCS curriculum and also focus on one, or several, specialized academic area(s). By focusing on an area of study, students have the opportunity to explore their interests while completing the FWCS curriculum. Magnet schools engage students by encouraging them to pursue their passions and goals while preparing them for a future of excellence.
