Academic Magnet Program at Burke High School.
Sklarz, David P.
A plan for the academic magnet high school (AMHS) program offered by the Charleston County (South Carolina) School District is presented in this report. A program overview describes general goals for students, which would emphasize thinking skills in all academic core areas, problem-solving skills in mathematics and research-based science, advanced computer skills, and statistical analysis. A science fair project and a "mini" thesis in fourth-year science would be required. The document then provides descriptions of advanced placement courses, school/university collaboration in the Charleston area, a list of electives in the AMHS program at Burke High School, promotion and admission standards, student outcomes, and a timeline for implementation. Two charts are included. (LMI)
