    Do I need to reapply each year?

    No. However, Magnet students in the 8th grade must apply for high school Magnet Programs.

     

    If my child is in this school and applies to a different Magnet Program, does he/she automatically get in?

    No. However, if your child is in a Magnet Program and applies to a secondary program by the deadline date, and meets the academic criteria, he/she will be given priority placement in filling the available seats. If a student chooses a different theme, priority placement WILL NOT be given. If the student wishes to change Magnet Programs in the middle of the academic year, entrance criteria must be met and space must be available in the new Magnet Program of choice. There is no automatic transfer.
