Magnetic Hill School is a K-8 school in Lutes Mountain, New Brunswick, Canada.

Today's Parent named it one of the top 40 schools in Canada,[2] and former principal Carolyn Norman was named as one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals in 2005 by The Learning Partnership and the Canadian Association of Principals. Magnetic Hill continues to be a high achieving school with many ongoing community partnerships and programs.[3]

History[edit]

The school received media coverage in the early 1990s when one of its teachers, Malcolm Ross, was involved in a human rights complaint by a local Jewish parent. Ross had published and distributed anti-Semitic literature, including Holocaust denial. The case eventually led to Ross being dismissed from his teaching job, but was made the school's librarian, because it was a non-teaching job.[4]
