Starting March 1, applications will be accepted for the 2017-2018 school year at Sorensen Magnet School of Art and Humanities and at Ramsey Magnet School of Science for new incoming kindergarten – 5th-grade students.  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.

Please note, even if you live in a magnet school attendance zone, new applicants are not guaranteed enrollment.  Be sure to fill out an application in the earliest “window” possible to increase your child’s chances of securing a spot. The two consecutive magnet school application windows:

Window #1 - March 1 - April 14, 2017
Window #2 - April 15 - August 11

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.
