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.

Ligon Middle School Reviews
Love the school. They made the transition from elementary to middle school as painless as possible. Wonderful electives, sports and arts programs!
Until they get in some administrators that know what "gifted" means, I would go elsewhere. The current (2010) administration is more concerned with lowering the suspension rate than academics.
