Magnet Schools Magnet schools differ from charter schools because they remain part of the public school system and operate under the same public school administration. These schools exist outside of zoned school boundaries, and usually have alternative or otherwise compelling modes of instruction. Magnet schools differ from other public schools in that they receive additional funding to enable them to spend more money on their students, supplies, teachers, programs, etc. Click here for a complete list of magnet schools
