Technology Magnet and Kindergarten Spanish Language Immersion Program
Apply for the Technology Magnet or Spanish Language Immersion Program
 Technology Magnet

The Clifton-Meadowview Mathematics, Science, and Computer Education Magnet Program offers a unique and technology intensive environment. It provides third through fifth grade students the opportunity to go beyond the confines of the classroom to explore real-life problems. These students are preparing to harness the power of computers to achieve success in personal and professional ventures. The magnet program exposes students to DeKalb’s excellent curriculum. Each student will have full access to a computer or laptop throughout the day, every day. Increased access to the computer provides bonus: more time to improve reading and math skills and more time to solve problems and manage information. Students use computer technology to conduct grade level research projects that integrate all curriculum areas. Computers are used to collect and analyze data in order to solve problems. All students are strongly encouraged to enter the DeKalb County School District Technology Fair with a project in one of the technology disciplines.

Kindergarten Spanish Language Immersion Program

Dual Immersion kindergarten students are immersed in the Spanish language. This produces students who are proficient in listening, speaking, and writing in a second language. Admission to the Dual Language Immersion program is only offered in kindergarten. The Dual Language Immersion students will remain in the program through the 5th grade. While the students are taught all of the Common Core standards, they have the added bonus of receiving their instruction in Spanish. This ultimately provides them with the unique opportunity to become fluent and literate in a second language, while mastering the Common Core standards.
