STEM magnet school

I'm not sure of the best word order. My attempt:

escuela magnet STEM (Ciencia, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas)

escuela magnet de Ciencia, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas (STEM, por sus siglas en inglés)

The above is assuming that I have already given a translation of "magnet"

I am translating a marketing brochure for a school district's new thematic magnet schools, so I need to include the translation in Spanish, not just leave the words in English without explaining.

There's no need to translate 'magnet', because it means that the school specializes in certain subjects. However, I've see where it has been translated as 'escuela especializada'.

I liked your last idea, and would throw out the translation for magnet (since the specialized subjects are listed).

Escuela de Ciencias, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas (STEM - siglas de inglés)

"ciencias" is plural in Spanish.

Thanks for reminding me, Luna Azul. I will add the "s" to my glossary.
