Magnet Lottery Information

  • Club Boulevard Humanities Elementary School is a magnet school with a Humanities theme that endeavors to help us to learn what it means to be human and how to express our humanity. Our Vision is to be a place where we all grow as human beings and our Mission is to appreciate many voices, celebrate the arts, connect learning to our world, and immerse ourselves in the humanities.

    The majority of our students (85%) are admitted through the magnet lottery pool. These students can live anywhere in Durham County and can receive bus transportation to and from school. There is a sibling preference for those applying to the lottery, however siblings of currently enrolled students are NOT guaranteed admission and must still apply to the lottery. If your child has gotten into Club Boulevard via the lottery, he or she has continued enrollment through 5th grade as long as you live in Durham County and do not enroll them in any other school.

    A small number (15%) of our students are admitted through the school’s walk-zone in the Northgate Park neighborhood. These students can remain at Club Boulevard as long as they do not move out of the walk zone.

    How do I find out more about the school?

    School tours are offered on a regular schedule in the months of November, December, and January on Fridays at 8am. To avoid excessive disruption of student learning, group tours are not offered at other times. Tours do not operate if school is canceled or delayed for inclement weather.
