Students can apply to attend one of Dallas ISD’s magnet schools or new transformation (choice) schools for the 2016-2017 school year. The application deadline for both programs is January 31 at 5 p.m.
Dallas ISD is home to some of the nation’s top magnet schools. Students applying to attend one of the district magnet schools must meet certain eligibility requirements.
Public school choice programs offer specialized academic programming, similar to magnet schools. Transformation schools are one of the new school choice categories that taps into students’ individual interests, learning styles, and aspirations. These schools do not have academic entry requirements – they are open enrollment for students across the district.
