My family made great use of DISD’s magnet schools. My two brothers and I all graduated from the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, as did my wife. She and my youngest brother are both products of the Sidney Lanier Expressive Arts Vanguard and the W.E. Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy. And I also went to the Alex W. Spence Talented and Gifted Academy.
If any of these schools sound like places you might want to send your kids, then you should attend DISD’s Magnet Fair on Saturday. Applications can be filed for any of the district’s magnets between Monday and Jan. 31.
