Magnet Schools are founded on five pillars: diversity, innovative curriculum and professional development, academic excellence, high-quality instructional systems, and family and community partnerships. Magnet programs in New Rochelle are visionary, innovative, and open to all students. Opportunities are designed to provide students with diverse experiences in learning. Diversity is a cornerstone to offering students a global educational experience. Currently, the schools providing a magnet approach to learning are Columbus Elementary School, Barnard Early Childhood Center, and Daniel Webster Elementary School. The lottery will be managed online to make it easier for families to register once they have accepted their seat.
How does the lottery work?
Parents/Guardians will return to this page on or after March 5th to enter the lottery if they are seeking an alternative to their home school. Parents/Guardians will then complete an application for each child they would like to enter into the lottery.
The final day to submit an entry for the lottery is March 22nd.
The lottery will take place on March 27th and parents/guardians will be notified of their placement(s). Parents/Guardians will then make their selection(s).
Once a selection has been made, parents/guardians will ‘accept’ their seat(s).
Parents/Guardians may then proceed to complete student(s) registration.
