DPS Magnet Fair

We would like to thank everyone for attending our 2018 DPS Magnet Fair. The Magnet School Lottery application window opens on Jan. 7th, 2019. Until then, here are a few next steps to think about:

  • Take a look at our Magnet Programs page.
  • Click on Program and Transportation Info to learn more about our different magnet school program offerings.
  • Select one or more magnet schools of interest to explore further.
  • Visit the schools of interest during the scheduled magnet tours (Tour schedules will be on the website).
  • Complete the online application during the magnet application period. The 2018-19 magnet application period will be January 7-31, 2019.
  • Accept or decline magnet assignment using the online system used when applying to the magnet school.
