Comprehensive, Magnet... What's the difference?
Magnet Program - Students from all over Baltimore County
are eligible to audition in the eighth-tenth grades to become part of a magnet program. These magnet
students participate in an intense magnet curriculum, taking a minimum of two
magnet credits per year. Students are also given the opportunity to participate
in experiences such as career exploration and portfolio
Comprehensive Program - Qualified students
may elect to take many of the courses offered. They have access to the same
facilities as magnet students and may choose to take as many classes as their
schedule and ability allow. The comprehensive program offers all students
opportunities in athletics, academics (Advanced Placement / Gifted &
Talented), and a variety of other extra curricular activities.
