SWD Magnet Program
Dr. Esther Walters, Magnet Coordinator
The Southwest DeKalb High School Magnet Program for High Achievers is designed to challenge students who will benefit from a fast-paced, stimulating environment. Our program provides a rigorous interdisciplinary course of study that meets the needs of highly motivated students. Special emphasis is placed on preparing students to succeed through higher-order critical thinking skills, creative and cooperative teaching, fluency in a second language, computer-based and multimedia instruction, and the infusion of multicultural literature.
