NORTHWEST SUBURBAN INTEGRATION SCHOOL DISTRICT (NWSISD)
Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD) is a collaborative of eight area school districts in the northwest metro. We provide our schools and communities with a variety of programs and services to promote racial equity and cultural awareness. We provide opportunities for students to participate in education programs that are multi-cultural, varied, and racially integrated. Program options are voluntary and available to families based on school choice.
Through magnet programming, families will experience the following:
- An opportunity to experience a K-12 magnet series within one theme: The Arts, International Baccalaureate, or STEM/STEAM.
- A large variety of school choice options within our eight member districts.
- Magnet programming that eliminates, reduces, or prevents racial isolation in elementary and secondary schools.
- Continuation of transportation for magnet students if they move anywhere within member district boundaries.
The eight member districts of NWSISD include Anoka-Hennepin School District, Brooklyn Center Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, Elk River Area School District, Fridley Public Schools, Mounds View Public Schools, Osseo Area Schools, and Rockford Area Schools. Collectively, NWSISD and its member districts have a charge to work together on integration and achievement goals.
At Fridley Public Schools, Hayes Elementary School, Stevenson Elementary School, Fridley Middle School and Fridley High School are all International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools that are also Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD) magnet schools.
