GISD APEX Magnet Schools
In 2018, GISD was awarded a Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) grant from the U.S. Department of Education to establish and continue our APEX (Academic Programs for Equity and eXcellence) schools.
The four MSAP-funded magnet campuses listed below are now in their third year of implementation and will be sustained by the district after the grant ends in 2023. The APEX schools were established to provide equity and opportunities for students to meet challenging academic content and achievement standards in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). In addition, the MSAP project will enhance partnerships, professional development, and family engagement at the magnet schools.
