Magnet School Operation Fair Exhibition Opportunities

Stockton whether artistic, scientific, or start college health cause your child's enthusiasm, the opportunity is Stockton unified with magnet schools only made for them.
Stockton families will have the opportunity Saturday to see the district’s magnet schools and programs firsthand, meet the principals and teachers and talk with current students at this year’s Magnet Fair, which will be held for the first time at University of the Pacific.
The fair will also give parents an opportunity to apply for admission to any of the 23 specialized programs SUSD offers to students no matter where they live in the district and, in some cases, the city as well. Students who apply will be entered into the lottery system for each school site.
While the schools are open year-round to visits from parents and prospective students, the fair will give families a chance to see all the programs at once.
“This is a great opportunity for parents to see everything that we offer,” said Jeff Keller, director of Education Services for the district. “It’s exciting. I have children of my own, and I wish where I lived that I had a similar kind of opportunity to actually shop for what I wanted for my own children.”
In addition to the foundational Common Core standards, district magnet schools are schools of choice centered on a specialized subject or curriculum designed to serve a student’s individual interests. Over the past 20 years, SUSD has developed a diverse range of magnet programs, everything from the Primary Years Academy of International Education to the creative student/family-focused Kohl Open Elementary School. Others include SUSD’s Early College Academy — the top performing high school in the region — Franklin High’s International Baccalaureate program, the Health Careers Academy and Weber Institute, where pre-engineering students have the opportunity to design airplanes.
Pitttman and Hong Kingston/Valenzuela Magnet Elementary School offer dual-immersion programs that teach students in both English and Spanish, and in addition to Fremont-Lopez’s visual and performing arts focus, Elmwood also focuses on the arts, Keller said; other specialized programs include Merlo’s environmental focus, Stagg High’s journalism program, science at Edison and music at Chavez.
Saturday’s fair will serve as an information-gathering event for parents, much like visits to prospective colleges that help students decide if a school is the “right fit — their opportunity to ask questions,” Keller said. Two of the schools will also hold performances in the foyer of the fair, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the ballroom at Pacific’s DeRosa University Center.
