DPS Magnet School Fair on Nov. 7
Posted on 11.02.2015, Monday

Durham Public Schools will hold a Magnet School Fair this Saturday, Nov. 7th from 10am – 1pm at the Southern School of Energy and Sustainability (800 Clayton Road).

imageThe 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 kindergarteners, and this is a wonderful opportunity to learn more!

Registering for magnet schools is a different process than other school registration. All applications must be submitted online during the magnet application window, which is January 11-29, 2016. However, beginning this year, parents must first register at their neighborhood school to optain their child’s power school number. More information about the registration process can be found here and here.
