I have two kids that has successfully completed the Magnet programs in the DeKalb County School District. Soon my grandson will follow in their footsteps. My daughter was in the magnet program from elementary thru High School. 10 Years apart my son followed. I am proud of the program, it really works. Both graduated from Columbia High School.
