Magnet Schools

(specialty theme schools)

Our magnet schools allow students to deepen their learning in special focus areas. Elementary magnet schools are Birch Grove Elementary School for the Arts and Weaver Lake Elementary: A Science, Math & Technology School. Both schools offer kindergarten. 

At Birch Grove School for the Arts, core curriculum is integrated with music, dance, drama and visual arts for daily classroom instruction. Arts-rich electives and arts troupes provide additional opportunities for students to “learn through our passion for the arts.”

At Weaver Lake Elementary: A Science, Math & Technology (STEM) School, learning takes place as students inquire about the world around them. Students who discover answers and solve challenges through reading, research and investigation become lifelong learners.

At Zanewood Community School: A Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math School, scholars are taught to be problem solvers, creators and collaborators. Learning activities are designed to appeal to children’s interests, be inclusive of all scholars’ cultures, and provide the right amount of academic challenge (and fun!) for children at all grade levels.

Applying to magnet schools:

Submit your completed magnet school application by the priority deadline of Dec. 31, 2019. Applications may be submitted online starting Oct. 15. For help with the application, please call 763-450-1300.

Within district guidelines, free transportation is provided to magnet school students who enroll through the Northwest Suburban Integration School District.

Kindergartners with older siblings who are currently enrolled at a magnet school still need to complete a magnet school application if they wish to attend Birch Grove, Weaver Lake or Zanewood.
