Global Experience Magnet School
Geared toward the 21st century global environment, this theme challenges students with rigorous academics and prepares them to become responsible, civic-minded citizens with intercultural understanding and respect.
At Global Experience Magnet School, which our school community warmly calls “GEMS,” we make the world our classroom. GEMS gives students in grades 6–12 a well-rounded, college preparatory education and ensures their readiness to excel in a fast-paced, global economy. Global Experience Magnet School will provide a customized education, deeply rooted in experiences that will allow each student to reach their maximum academic and social potential. If your child is interested in traveling, and wants to be challenged in the classroom with an individualized curriculum and personal attention, then GEMS might be the perfect fit.
