Ramsey Magnet School of Science

Big School -> Bigger Heart

Ramsey is proud to be one of two schools in the district to institute a uniform policy. This process could not have been completed without the help of staff, parents and administration.



In order to make certain all our students receive appropriate educational supports, Coeur d’Alene School District 271 conducts a mid-year residency verification. Residency is defined as where your family sleeps at night. Has your residency changed since September 8, 2015? If yes AND if any of the following statements are true for your family, please contact your school counselor or the Coeur d’Alene School District Homeless Liaison, James Curb at 208-664-8241 ext. 1061 or jcurb@cdaschools.org for more information about educational services that may be available to your student(s) and family.
