Elizabeth Traditional ElementaryCharlotte Magnet Schools Deadlines  approaching – What are the most popular choices?

As we near the application deadline for the Charlotte Magnet schools, parents and students are wondering what the chances are that they will get their first choice in the school lottery. Charlotte Magnet schools have many popular choices. If the 2015/2016 school year wait list is any indication of school popularity, several schools will be in high demand and most likely have a wait list for students.  Magnet schools are public schools that offer a special curricular focus. Common themes include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), the arts, and vocational or career paths. The important point is that magnet schools are schools of choice – children are enrolled based of their interest in the school’s theme, not based upon where they live.  As we approach the enrollment deadline for the 2016-2017 school year, let’s review some of the most popular magnet school choices for last year along with the number of students on the wait lists:

Chantilly Montessori

▪ Morehead STEM Academy: 556

▪ Park Road Montessori: 341

Charlotte Engineering Early College at UNC Charlotte: 325

▪ Irwin Academic Center LI/TD: 219

▪ Chantilly Montessori: 167

▪ Elizabeth Traditional: 155

▪ Myers Park Traditional: 154

▪ Cotswold Elementary IB: 152
