Sinclair Elementary’s Magnet Program

Sinclair Elementary offers a unique magnet program, pairing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with multiple elements of humanities disciplines through a focus on communications.

Offerings include:

  • STEM Lab (hands-on engineering paired with introduction to coding languages)

  • Digital Media & Publications Workshop (communicating original works via various digital mediums)

  • Music Composition & Performance Studio (building music literacy through performance and computer-based compositions)

  • Drama & Theatre Production (strengthening interpersonal and collaboration skills)

  • Gifted & Talented Programming

  • SMARTBoards in all classrooms

  • Outdoor Learning CenterAfter-school clubs (athletic & academic/enrichment)

  • Site-based after school child care program

  • Pre-Kindergarten program

Prospective families are welcome to join a school tour, taking place every Thursday at 9:30AM. Appointments are not necessary to attend. Check Sinclair's website: for upcoming tour dates.

The Sinclair drama department is in need of flat or fitted bedsheets that you may no longer be using. They will be used to make togas for the winter drama production. Sheets can be dropped at the school office or bring them to the next TMCC meeting.
