Magnet and Comprehensive High Schools

SLPS Magnet and Comprehensive High Schools provide students with intimate, personalized learning environments and “hands-on” educational experiences that prepare them for the future. Through internships, career mentors, and work study programs, these schools offer students unique opportunities while studying rigorous college level coursework. The schools also enable students to engage in an education supported by strong partnerships with universities, technical schools and local businesses and organizations.

Students interested in attending a St. Louis Magnet High School are selected based on several criteria, including G.P.A., attendance records and disciplinary records. In addition, some schools require student essays, interviews or auditions. All St. Louis City residents are eligible to apply.
