Magnet Program Information

The International Studies Magnet program allows students to become familiar with the cultural, geographical, and political diversity of the world, through an international lens. Ninth and tenth grade students receive a unique experience through the Middle Years Programme (MYP), an extension of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. ​Magnet students receive instruction in all subject areas which meets Georgia curriculum requirements with a unique and rigorous internationally-minded lens required by IB. 

Magnet students can choose to continue their studies in the eleventh and twelfth grades through the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP), or alternately through a rigorous set of à-la-carte IB; Advanced Placement (AP); World Languages; Humanities (English, Social Studies, etc.), and strategic electives. In addition, Magnet students earn a prestigious magnet seal, the Georgia Department of Education-approved International Skills Diploma Seal, and they receive special recognition at graduation.​​
