What is a Literacy Magnet?
Magnet schools in Wichita have the same basic curriculum as all other elementary schools, but a magnet program provides an emphasis in a particular area. Our literacy theme focuses on language, literature and writing. Literacy includes spoken and written language, mathematics, the arts and technology in a literature-based format. Our program utilizes research-based curriculum to teach language arts; builds on best practices in reading; teaches the writing process, math and science and includes literature in all areas of the curriculum. You really need to come and see us in action!
