Northside High School - NOR

Engineering and Biotechnology

This magnet program provides transportation!

The Northside Biotechnology and Engineering Magnet programs are hands-on, project based courses that engage students on multiple levels, expose them to areas of study that they typically do not pursue and provide them with a foundation and proven path to college and career success. The curriculum is founded in the fundamental problem-solving and critical thinking skills taught in traditional career and technical education, but at the same time integrates national academic standards to create a model for 21st century learning. The Engineering program applies science, math, technology, and engineering to encourage problem solving complex, open ended problems in a real world context. Students focus on the process of defining and solving a problem, not just getting the “right” answer. The Biotechnology program enables students to receive initial exposure to many Healthcare Science careers.  Fundamental healthcare skills are developed in microbiology and students are exposesd to different fields through labs and other criteria.

Northside is a partial magnet, therefore we are only able to accept 100 students for the upcoming freshmen class.  Students that live in the Northside attendance must apply as well to be considered for acceptance.  Since our magnet program is heavily based in Math and Science we are looking for students who excel in that curriculum in addition to being well rounded students.  We do NOT offer an entrance exam, instead we focus on current report card grades, previous standardized test scores, current Math and Science teacher recommendations, a student generated essay, attendance and behavior information.

Due to the sequencing of our magnet classes we are NOT able to accept rising JUNIORS or SENIORS unless the student has previously been enrolled in classes using the GaDOE pathway curriculum.

We look forward to you joining us for our IN PERSON Magnet Open House on Tuesday, December 12th at 6:30pm beginning in the auditorium.
