Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs.

Hawthorne Elementary Scholastic Academy Reviews
There is very little critical thinking type of activities at Hawthorne. The children are bombarded with worksheets and the short schedule eliminates much needed recess and gym and really rushes instruction time. The teachers could really use additional time for the existing classes but have recently voted not to extend the day. Money at Hawthorne is not an issue.
This is a great school and I think that everyone should go there. My son loves it there and loves to get to school every day.
