    Definitions of "magnet school" and "traditional school"

    I am sorry, I grew up in a county with one school to go to. I keep hearing all this talk about Manual being a magnet school and the Male "traditional program". Could someone please help me on this issue.

    I don't know if this helps but, I grew up attending a city school. My children have attended "city" and "county" school's while we lived in different states.

    FKY, Check out this info on the JCPS website :School Choice
    * A traditional school is a type of magnet school that focuses on basic skills in a traditional learning environment that requires uniforms, daily homework, and parental involvement. A traditional program operates in the same way as a traditional school, but it's a program within a school. Traditional schooling is available for elementary, middle, and high school students.
    *A magnet career academy is a type of high school that lets students focus on training for a specific career. For instance, Southern High School Magnet Career Academy lets students focus on transportation technology. Doss High School Magnet Career Academy lets students focus on training to become teachers. JCPS offers more than a dozen magnet career academies.
    *A Montessori school uses the Montessori approach to learning, which encourages critical thinking, exploration, and self-directed education. Coleridge-Taylor Montessori Elementary and Kennedy Montessori Elementary are magnet schools. Rangeland Elementary offers a Montessori Program that serves students in the Rangeland cluster of elementary schools.
