[[Central Park School for Children]] is a Magnet School within the [[Durham, NC]] Public School system. Their status as a magnet school exempts them from many of the school system's rules, and their approach to education is "child-centered" and rather more flexible than traditional-style schools within the system. Class sizes are also smaller. The main downside is that admission is by lottery, so it can be difficult to get in; they are, however, expanding to help meet demand. They are also (Fall, 2005) in the process of adding a middle school.
