When you have a family, one of the most important aspects of moving involves finding a new school district. If your child is in high school, you may consider a magnet school. Magnet schools specialize in a particular program or field of study, often preparing its students for advancement in a specific field. Often, these schools are academically superior, with excellent student/teacher ratios and award-winning performances.
