Durham Public Schools will hold a Magnet School Fair on Saturday, Nov. 5th from 10am – 1pm at the Southern School of Energy and Sustainability (800 Clayton Road).
The fair gives elementary, middle and high school students and parents an opportunity to talk with school staff and explore magnet theme offerings at Durham Public Schools. There are 10 elementary magnet school options. Each school has either a specialized program, nontraditional instructional method, or operates on a year-round calendar. These are great options for students, including rising kindergartners, and this is a wonderful opportunity to learn more!
To enroll in a magnet school, families must complete an online application to enter the lottery – a random selection process that allows families to register their magnet choices and then see if they get accepted. The annual Magnet and CTE Online Application Lottery begins January 9 and ends January 31, 2017.
