Octavia E. Butler Magnet: A Different Middle School Experience

What’s different about Octavia E. Butler Magnet (OEBM) STEAM and Dual Language Immersion middle school?

OEBM middle school does indeed differ from those of several decades ago. People often imagine middle school students sitting in straight rows, listening intently to the teacher and reading from the same book.

At Octavia E. Butler Magnet, students learn to problem-solve, work collaboratively, and engage in their own learning. Teachers provide guidance and a positive classroom learning environment. All students have the opportunity to participate in school activities.

Students are pushed to develop a high level of thinking, listening, speaking, reading, writing proficiency, are encouraged to strive for academic excellence and develop positive attitudes and appreciation toward different cultures in our global society.

At Octavia E. Butler Magnet , we offer students (and parents) a variety of options to help each student reach his or her maximum potential by cultivating individual abilities and interests. We encourage students (and parents) to explore the variety of innovative programs offered at Octavia E. Butler Magnet and find the best fit for your student (and the family).
