  • Montgomery's Magnet Schools Selected as Alabama’s 2020 ‘Standout Schools’

    • Share:

    There are all sorts of lists of the best schools, covering things such as academics, athletics, quality of teachers and more.

    The Niche list of “Standout Schools” is slightly different, however. While the list includes factors such as graduation rates and state test scores, it is limited to only schools where at least 50 percent of students are identified as economically disadvantaged and those that achieve at least a “B” on Niche’s overall grade rankings.

    Many of these schools are selective admission magnet schools, meaning students must meet some type of admission standard to enroll and remain enrolled at the school. Magnet schools are often given additional resources to support the advanced academic and arts programming in their schools.

    You can see more on how the schools are chosen here.
