• Welcome to the Science Magnet Program!

    Greetings, Prospective Mattos Parents
    As Fremont Unified's only Science Magnet, Mattos Elementary offers your child the opportunity to transfer from your home school and enroll in the Science Magnet program. Admission is based on available space. You will need to fill out an Intra District Transfer Form at your home school when you register. Please make the request as MAGNET in the upper right hand corner. You may either bring the form directly to Mattos School and we will process it for you, or you may ask your home school to send it to us.
    About the Science Magnet Program:
    Mattos Elementary, which is centrally located in Fremont off Mowry Ave. near 880, offers a "Soaring into Science" program that turns natural curiosity into a unique learning experience for students in kindergarten through sixth grade. The program uses approved district and state curriculum standards and enhances these with additional programs, such as the Programming For Kids (P4K) initiative that introduces students to computer programming and the Math-Science Nucleus partnership that brings docents into the classroom to teach hands-on science. In addition, Mattos has an active PTA-sponsored Science Committee that organizes such events as the annual the annual Astronomy Night, an annual Family Science Night and other extracurricular science-based activities. Students may enter Mattos at any grade.
