Magnet Admission Information
Dimon Magnet Academy
At Dimon, we have explicit rules and expectations of our Magnet students. Students will be required to maintain an A-B average in all subject areas, have good behavior, and score above grade level on assessments given throughout the school year.
We have a strong focus on Reading and Math. In order to become better readers and mathematicians, we have started to blend STEM into our curriculum. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We are working our way towards becoming a state certified STEM school. Our students perform rigorous projects throughout the school year. There are also STEM days where classes focus on a STEM activity for the school day.
On March 22, 2019, we will host our annual STEAM day. On this day, students see several different presenters that speak about a job they do related to STEM. Students also do an activity and keep a journal of what they did during the STEM day.
Also in February, we will have our Magnet Open House, where you can visit our school and see if you are interested in having your child attend Dimon Magnet Academy. The magnet application can be found on the right side, along with the handbook which states expectations. We also would need to see report card scores and any relevant test scores. Students can also test into our program by scoring above grade level on a Reading and Math assessment administered at Dimon. Our first testing dates will begin after spring break.
If you are interested in your upcoming Kindergartener joining Dimon's Magnet Program, we will have testing start in March of 2019. Students will be tested on items such as letter and number recognition, letter sound recognition, shapes, knowing their address, and much more. If you would like a study guide, you can email Mr. Elliott . We will also open up testing for grades 1-5, and each of those grade levels have different tests that pertain to that grade level.
