Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent makes. Do you have a child who doesn’t necessarily “fit the mold” offered at your current school? Or are you looking for a change in direction as your child advances from one level to the next? If so, there’s an exciting educational alternative you need to know about! It’s the St. Louis Magnet School Program.
