Tulsa Public Schools received a $12 million federal grant to create quality, interest-based magnet programs in four high schools.
These magnet schools feature a variety of environments designed to cater to students' interests and strengths. Central, McLain, Hale and Webster high schools will use revolutionary programs that challenge and inspire students to prepare for exciting, successful careers.
Applications to the following four schools are accepted all year round.

Q: What’s the difference between a Magnet School and a Magnet Program?
A: A magnet school provides a specialized learning environment for students who have strengths and interests in a particular discipline or career. Students follow an individualized curriculum that prepares them for a career or postsecondary options while giving them hands-on learning opportunities in subjects that attract and engage their interests.
Magnet programs operate just like magnet schools, but are specialized programs within a school. Only students who elect to enroll in the magnet component are immersed in the program. Students are accepted to most TPS magnet programs based upon specific criteria.
