1 Attracting Attention Magnet schools and programs in

2 What is a Magnet School or Program? Designed with open access in mind, magnet schools and programs offer specialized courses focused on theme-based instruction and technology. Speciallytrained magnet teachers often come from professional careers in the private sector, matching their teaching subject areas. Magnet schools and programs attract students from all over Marion County, not just surrounding school attendance zones. Admission is application-based, and some schools and programs require minimum testing levels and auditions. Admission may also depend on majority-to-minority enrollment figures and space availability. For more information on any of these opportunities, contact the respective school at the numbers provided.

Forest High 5000 SE Maricamp Rd. Ocala, FL International Baccalaureate Program Offered at Oakcrest Elementary, Howard Middle, Lake Weir High, and Vanguard High The International Baccalaureate (IB) program is for academically able and highly motivated students. Founded in 1967 to provide a rigorous, well-rounded, college preparatory education to students around the world, there are presently more than 3,043 IB schools in 139 countries. The program s common broadly-based curriculum is assessed by internationally developed and graded exams, papers and portfolios. At the elementary level, students automatically become part of the Primary Years Program. At this level, IB prepares students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. Six themes of global significance create a trans-disciplinary framework allowing students to "step up" beyond the confines of learning within these

6 subject areas: who we are, where we are in place and time, how we express ourselves, how the world works, how we organize ourselves, and sharing the planet. In middle school, IB helps students find a sense of belonging in the everchanging and increasingly interrelated world around them while fostering a positive learning attitude. Students are required to study their native language, a second language, humanities, sciences, mathematics, arts, physical education and technology. In their final year, students engage in a personal project allowing them to demonstrate the understandings and skills developed throughout the program. In high school, students begin pre-ib courses during their freshman or sophomore year and complete the IB curriculum as juniors and seniors. High school requirements include passing exam scores in six subjects, completing 150 hours of Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) activities, writing a 4,000- word extended essay, and taking the IB Theory of Knowledge course. The program is unique because it provides an interdisciplinary, liberal arts education leading to a diploma recognized worldwide. High school student selection is based on prior academic achievement, standardized test scores, a writing sample, and a personal interview. Applications for admission are available at the schools.
