  1. Hello! I’m wondering if the middle school will host a fall open house? I have a 5th grade son who is interested in attending next year…

  2. Thank you for your comment. There will be an open house for anyone that is interested in attending on Tuesday, October 8th from 5-6:30 at SciTech.


  3. Thank you for your message, the PPS Magnet Office has the essay requirements. Yes there is always a waiting list, although the length of the list varies from year to year.


  4. Hi, I am wondering if there is giing to be another open house to come check the school out? I have a 5th grader who is very interested in attending the school. Or are we able to set up a date to come visit the school?


  5. Thank you for your email. We will not have an additional open house this year. However, if a student is accepted there will be a mandatory information session in late February/early March where there will be more information and building tours.


  6. Thank you for your comment. We can understand your frustration. Acceptance to our school is completely based on the lottery and we don’t select or deny students based on their essay or other criteria. The information of students that will be attending the following school year comes from the PPS Magnet Office. If you don’t get in for the next school year we recommend that you apply for the following year.
