In 1993, Mabel Hoggard, Clark High School, and the Las Vegas Academy were the first magnet programs to open in the Las Vegas Valley. Because of the tremendous success of our magnet programs, the demand has greatly exceeded the available seats for students. Since 2014, CCSD has added an additional 15 magnet schools, bringing the total offerings to 40 magnet schools. Additional quality programs mean more choice and access for the students of CCSD.
Magnet programs benefit the community by
- Improving teaching and learning to increase student achievement

- Providing educational equity
- Improving school integration
- Uniting school and community through focused curriculum
