7. It could be better
Since magnet schools tend to attract either students who are highly motivated or students whose parents are highly motivated, you'll have a lower than average population of slackers and behavior problems.

For example, admission to the Bronx High School of Science is highly competitive. To get into Portland's Arts Magnet, students have to audition.
