Millbrook is Named National Magnet School of Distinction

We are proud to announce that MECME was named a 2023 National Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America, the national association for magnet and theme-based schools.   


MECME will be recognized and receive a National Magnet School of Distinction Merit Award during an awards ceremony held at Magnet Schools of America’s National Conference this April in Dallas, Texas.

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.
