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 fifth grade.

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.
