Founded on the five pillars of diversity, innovative curriculum and professional development, academic excellence, high quality instructional systems and family and community partnerships, magnet schools were designed to be the hub of academic excellence, innovation and equity.  As a member of the Magnet Schools of America (MSA) community, you are provided with unique opportunities to network, collaborate and connect with hundreds of magnet schools and districts across the United States.  This network is a guiding force in educational change, equity and advancement for teachers, students and communities.

While each magnet school is unique in theme, purpose and goals, these common pillars serve as the foundation for magnet school excellence.  As a member of the Magnet Schools of America community, there are many benefits to experience.

As an established partner of Magnet Schools of America, the global Toddle community has developed some resources which allow you to personalize your magnet school values to your own community within the framework of the five MSA pillars. We’ve created a useful resource for schools which captures the essence of each pillar while giving you an opportunity to showcase the unique features and benefits of your school community.

Use this resource to:

  • To create or align your school’s vision and mission statement with the five MSA pillars
  • To market and showcase the main values of the five pillars of magnet schools
