Magnet School of Distinction
Magnet schools in the Wake County Public School System are serving as national examples for high standards. This year, Magnet Schools of America awarded 39 WCPSS schools, including MECME, with Magnet Schools of America Merit Awards. To receive a national merit award, members of Magnet Schools of America must submit a detailed application that is scored by a panel of educators. These schools are judged and scored on their demonstrated ability to raise student academic achievement, promote racial and socioeconomic diversity, provide integrated curricula and instruction, and create strong family and community partnerships that enhance the school’s magnet theme. The Magnet School of Distinction is the second highest award of recognition. Come bee alive in the hive at MECME!
