Our Magnet Open House for 2020-2021 school year enrollment will be held Thursday, October 3, 2019 from 5:30-6:30 in the auditorium.


  • Students who live outside J. L. Mann High School's attendance zone must apply to and be accepted into the Magnet Program in order to attend the school and participate in an academic program such as NewTech@Mann. These students can apply to enter the Magnet Program in the ninth, tenth, or eleventh grade. Student acceptance into the Magnet Program is based on four criteria: grades, attendance, discipline, and a student statement of interest in one of the school's three magnet focus areas. The three magnet focus areas at the school are mathematics, science, and technology.
  • Students who live inside the school's attendance zone (homebase students) may ask the magnet coordinator to be considered for the Magnet Program. These students must complete a Homebased Magnet Declaration Form, a Magnet Student Contract, and meet with the magnet coordinator.
  • All students in the Magnet Program must complete the course requirements in their chosen magnet focus area(s) and a Senior Capstone Experience in order to graduate with magnet distinction.
