SPS Magnet Schools Receive National Awards
Magnet Schools of America (MSA), the national association for magnet and theme-based schools, has selected Springfield Renaissance School, Springfield Central High School and John J. Duggan Academy to receive its 2017 national merit awards.
Renaissance is a recipient of MSA's Magnet Schools of Excellence, the top merit award given to a select group of magnet schools and programs across the country. Duggan and Central are recipients of the Magnet Schools of Distinction, the second highest award of recognition. These SPS magnet schools are being recognized for their commitment to high academic standards, school diversity, specialized curricula and instruction, family engagement, and community partnerships.
The three schools will be recognized this upcoming April during the 35th National Conference on Magnet Schools in Los Angeles, California.
