Baltimore County school officials will strengthen arts programs at three high schools but phase out magnet programs at three elementary schools as part of a reorganization of magnet offerings over the next five to seven years.

The George Washington Carver Center for the Arts in Towson, which moved into a new $88 million facility in 2012, will add instrumental music to its course offerings. Patapsco High School in Dundalk will phase in a literary arts program and Milford Mill Academy in Windsor Mill will boost its current arts class offerings.

Superintendent Dallas Dance said the county is known for its arts programs, which have received national recognition in both music and the visual arts.
