Magnet Study Visit Report

In April 2014, Magnet Schools of America (MSA) was requested to submit a proposal to conduct a Study Visit for 38 of their district magnet programs. In January 2014, MSA was contracted to complete the Study Visit process and deliver a report to the Magnet office in May 2015 that answered three essential questions:

1. Are CMS magnet schools diverse?

2. Are CMS magnet schools promoting achievement?

3. Are CMS schools “magnetic” (attractive to students and families)?


The purpose of the Study Visit was to provide Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools with a strategy to build upon its strengths and leverage challenges as opportunities. By doing so, the public and members of the community now have a more complete picture of how the magnet schools are a vital part of the system itself. Please click here to access the full report.
