About Magnet Schools

 

 

Freeport School District has four grade K-4 magnet schools.  All schools have the following characteristics in common:  They share the common goal to inspire and support students in reaching their full potential; offer dual language, inclusion, general education, and English as a Second Language classes; and they teach to the New York State Learning Standards.  What makes them unique is that they provide parents with a choice in their child's education, based on each school's distictive theme and instructional philosophy.

New Visions Museum School of Exploration and Discovery celebrates learning and individuality by teaching through multiple intelligences and immersing students in theme-based projects and academic investigations.  Students convey what they learn as a real museum does, using a variety of formats, including the arts, multimedia, school-wide exhibits and guided tours.  Strong school and home connections are developed through various school, family and community events that promote multiple intelligences and validate explorations and discoveries.
