Prospective Students

 If you are a prospective parent or student interested in finding out more about our Gifted, Highly Gifted, High Ability Magnet Program you are encouraged to attend one of the four Open House events.  We strongly encourage you to register so we can communicate logistics (parking, event changes) prior to your scheduled visit.  Registering also enables us to procure enough magnet student tour guides for our guests.

We offer these events only during the "Open Enrollment" Magnet Application Period.  It is advised that you attend an event before you submit an application. For those individuals unable to attend the scheduled events please understand that requests cannot be honored for private tours or additional dates or times. 

Each Open House event begins with a short PowerPoint Presentation by Magnet Coordinator Drew Lord. After the presentation guests take a tour of campus which includes opportunities to visit Magnet classes in session and speak with teachers and students. These tours are guided by current Magnet students who are by far our best program ambassadors.  At the conclusion of the tours, guests have a chance to ask questions before the conclusion of the event.

Magnet applications can be submitted any time between October 1st and November 15th: in other words, there is no advantage to applying earlier in the Open Enrollment window as opposed to later.  However, applications submitted during the Open Enrollment period (Oct 1 to Nov 15) will have priority over Late Applications (available in February 2020).  Please note the Magnet Application timeline on the Unified Enrollment graphic below.
