• Magnet Middle and High School Priorities (Excluding East Garner MS, Zebulon MS and Garner HS)

     

    Guaranteed priority

    Rising 6th and 9th-grade students receive guaranteed priority to join an older sibling assigned as a magnet student at the same school in 2021-22.

    Priority 2

    Current magnet students who follow their program pathway when changing school levels, i.e. elementary to middle. (A student who had magnet status in 5th grade at the elementary pathway school but has base status at pathway middle school will still qualify for Priority 2.) 

     

    Priority 3

    Current magnet students who seek to change their program pathway when changing school levels.

     

    Priority 4

    Base students at magnet schools who follow their program pathway.
