Richland One Magnet Programs Hosting Virtual Parent Info Sessions

 

 

From bilingual education to getting a head start in college and career preparation, Richland One’s unique magnet programs offer students exciting choices that challenge them academically while nurturing their personal interests. Families can learn more about these magnet programs by joining virtual parent information sessions.

 

More details about the programs, including eligibility requirements, also are available on the district website www.richlandone.org. (Please note that although a few district magnet programs have certain attendance zone requirements, the magnet programs listed below are open to all Richland One students.)

 

Carver-Lyon Elementary School Language Immersion Magnet

Beginning in pre-kindergarten, Richland One’s Language Immersion Magnet offers students a bilingual education where half of the students’ instructional time is taught in English and the other half is taught in either Mandarin Chinese, Spanish or French. Educators believe being bilingual has long-term advantages because it makes students more marketable and gives them a competitive edge in college and the workplace.
