Museum magnet school, thematic magnet school

What word order, or how would you phrase these? They need to be as short as possible. My attempts:

escuela magnet con tema de museo

Churchwell Museum Magnet Elementary (escuela primaria y magnet Churchwell con tema de museo) (escuela primaria Churchwell con tema de magnet y museo)


escuelas temáticas magnet (es decir, que atraen estudiantes de otras zonas escolares)

I don't always translate names, but I often do as above with Churchwell, the first time in a document so that Spanish speakers can understand what it is. I always define magnet the first time it appears in text (not in headings, usually).

I went ahead and used my attempts, including the second one I mentioned for Churchwell. "Escuela especializada" has a different meaning for our school district, and I needed to specifically use the word "magnet," as we have been doing. Thanks anyway, though.
