    December 15 - January 10                 Magnet School Application Period

    This is the only time to apply to a magnet school (High Schools: Atkins, Kennedy, North Forsyth, Paisley, Parkland, Reynolds and Winston-Salem Preparatory Academy. Middle Schools: Hanes, Mineral Springs, Paisley, Philo-Hill, Wiley, and Winston-Salem Preparatory Academy). You will find out whether you were accepted by mail around the last week in January. For more information visit wsfcs.k12.nc.us/magnet .

    January 10                                         Magnet School Application Deadline- mailed to School Assign.


    Mid-January:                                      HS and MS Assignment Letters                                      

    Students will bring home a letter showing his or her school assignment for next year and explaining how to apply for a Choice transfer to a different high school or Middle School.


    January 27 - February 7:  

    If you would like your child to attend another high school, apply now for a Choice transfer. If there is space available and you will provide your own transportation, we will try to give you a spot. If space is limited, students will be assigned in the order that their choice applications were received.

    **You must print out the application, sign and then have it notarized and then MAIL it to School Assignment** 

    You'll receive your assignment by mail around Mid-February.

    • One exception: If your child was accepted into a magnet school and you want your child to attend that school, you should not complete a choice card; it will override your magnet assignment.
