This is the time of the year is when families at all grade levels start thinking about schools. High school students are starting to hear about their post-secondary options. K-12 families are trying to find programs that meet their children's needs. Students always have the option to attend their designated school. However, Guilford County also has a wide variety of themed choices. The above photo features families and educators in the booth of the General Greene Elementary School of Science and Technology. This school, located on Benjamin Parkway, had so much interactive material that students were captivated. Their display had everything from microscopes so science experiments to reptiles. General Greene has a state of the art science lab, many options for digital learning, and educational field trips to reinforce their curriculum. They also have extremely catchy tie-dyed t-shirts (see below).
Each magnet school, or school of choice, has curricular features and equipment relevant to their theme. If you live in the county and are interested, apply soon. The application process is in full swing and programs fill quickly. For the next three Mondays, potential applicants have the opportunity to tour schools.
