Magnet School Application Procedures - PDF 


Applications are now being accepted for the 2015-2016 school year at Sorensen Magnet School of Art and Humanities and at Ramsey Magnet School of Science.  Applications may be picked up at the magnet school office between the hours of 8:00 am - 4:00 pm or you may download one from the magnet school’s website. The first Open Application Window is for any incoming kindergarten – 5th grade students that are not currently enrolled at a magnet school.  

Please note: Even if you live in a magnet school attendance zone, enrollment is not guaranteed unless you are currently enrolled at the magnet school.  Be sure to fill out an application in the earliest “Window” possible to increase your child’s chances of securing a spot. The three consecutive magnet school application windows:

Window #1 - February 9   – April 10, 2015
Window #2 - April 13       – June 5, 201
Window #3 - June 8         – August 14, 2015
Applicants will be accepted based on available openings. If there are more applicants than space available, there will be a lottery process. Within 15 days of the close of the enrollment period, families will be notified of the status of their application.
