Borton Elementary

Girl inspecting plant with a loupeBorton Magnet School is an elementary school that focuses on Systems Thinking and Project-based Learning. Project -based Learning engages children in making connections and pursuing their questions in real world contexts. Systems Thinking helps children solve problems and make their thinking visible as they seek to understand how the world around them works. Through these approaches, children develop as readers, writers, mathematicians, and scientists, preparing them for a future yet unknown.


Borton has been recognized as one of the top magnet schools in the nation, receiving 20062007, and 2017 Merit Awards from Magnet Schools of America.


We are committed to integration, diversity, and racial equity.
