Deadline for students assigned to a magnet school to enroll
Northwest Suburban Integration School District
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. Our schools aim to grow internationally minded students by guiding them in the development of learning skills to reach their full potential.
Magnet schools are public schools of choice, offering comprehensive, high-quality, thematic curriculum intended to attract students from a wide range of racial, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Students who live outside a magnet school’s attendance zone can apply for an opportunity to enroll in the magnet school or program. Entrance into Fridley Public Schools magnet schools and other NWSISD magnet schools and programs is application based and open to all students who live within the seven member district boundaries.
NWSISD is a collaborative of seven area school districts in the northwest metro providing schools and communities with a variety of programs and services to promote racial equity and cultural awareness. The seven member districts of NWSISD include Anoka-Hennepin School District, Brooklyn Center Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, Elk River Area School District, Fridley Public Schools, Osseo Area Schools, and Rockford Area Schools.
Priority application registration is open mid-October through end of December with lotteries taking place beginning of January. To learn more about NWSISD, its application timeline and to apply via online application, please visit www.nws.k12.mn.us.
