The John Muir Magnet School is designed to provide an academically challenging, constructivist-based education for students in grades K-8th with a focus on outdoor education, the natural sciences, and the arts. Magnet schools are public schools with specialized curricula that, based on their unique focus, attract specific families who support this philosophy. We hold high expectations for behavior and participation, and we hope to draw families with the same interests and priorities as listed in the educational tenets below. Please take time to learn more about our school and enrollment information by visiting our website and attending our Open House.
To register for Kindergarten, students must be 5 years old by September 1, 2014.
