Magnet Programs‎ > ‎


Students accelerate in various science fields beyond the usual curriculum. We offer the following specialties: Living Environment for our eighth graders which will culminate in a Regents Examination and Regents’ credit toward the high school diploma. We will continue to offer Earth Science as a Regents course. Marine Biology is also offered to our eighth graders and will be taught in conjunction with the NY Aquarium. Students will be trained to function as docents and serve as tour guides/instructors for the public at the Aquarium. An Astronomy Magnet for our eighth graders is also planned. Sixth and seventh graders will have a Herpetology Magnet, an Environmental Science Magnet and a Forensic Science Magnet.
