Piscataway Magnet School has established a program that enriches the learning experience and motivates students to academic and career excellence. With its school within a school approach, students become creative problem solvers, effective communicators, and tomorrow’s workforce leaders through a rigorous, specialized career curriculum and collaborative community partnerships.
The administration, faculty, staff and parents, aided by leaders from local businesses, industry and post-secondary institutions form an integrated community with the intent of developing future leaders who have the desire, skills and preparation necessary to be life-long learners. Faculty members act as facilitators, assisting students in acquiring the communication and information access skills they will need to function as productive citizens in an increasingly technological workforce. Students are taught to be careful risk-takers and creative problem solvers in a global society. Achievement of these goals will result in their becoming socially and ethically responsible in the workforce.
A broader knowledge base and appreciation developed through exploring the interconnections among academics and career majors fosters high-level thinking skills. To foster this development, the Piscataway Magnet School will offer opportunities for the students to explore not only these connections, but also access a wide range of subjects and interests.
The application and admission process has become increasingly competitive. Our approach embraces students, faculty, staff, and administration on a mission of excellence, requiring the most of, and providing the most to, all who enter there.
