How are Students Selected

Selection of Students

Students are selected with a priority point system for magnet schools based on the Court Order to address the five harms of racial isolation: 1) low academic achievement, 2) overcrowded conditions, 3) interracial hostility and intolerance, 4) lack of access to postsecondary opportunities, and 5) low self-esteem.
Priority points are based on the following criteria: 
  • Matriculation from another magnet program
  • Waiting List
  • Predominantly Hispanic, Black, Asian, or 
  • Other Non-Anglo (PHBAO) homeschool
  • Overcrowded homeschool
  • Sibling attending the same magnet program.
