School Overview

Reggio Magnet School of the Arts empowers students to learn through exploration and discovery in spaces that ignite creativity and foster collaboration. Students are engaged in an arts-integrated, project-based approach that enhances their reading, math, and science skills while inspiring high levels of creativity, critical thinking, and collaborative problem-solving. Reggio’s rich spirit of collaboration between students, families, and the community creates an environment that invites meaningful interactions between people and ideas. Through interactions with peers and the environment, students learn empathy and develop the intellectual and interpersonal skills to be tomorrow’s leaders.
