Happy New Year North Pointe Families!
Magnet Applications Open January 2nd!
This year, the magnet process will begin on January 2nd and end on February 5th. The magnet process is only applicable at the elementary levels and Southwood Middle.
If you are a current magnet student at North Pointe, you MUST reapply each year in order to remain at the school. For NEW students applying to North Pointe, acceptance is based on the number of available seats at each grade-level.
To apply online, visit the Anderson Five webpage at www.anderson5.net. The application process will be posted on the morning of January 2nd. The school will also have paper applications available. Mailing directions are provided on the paper application, as they must be mailed or hand-delivered.
SIBLING RULE: Non-magnet siblings of magnet students may apply to automatically attend their brother or sister's magnet school, pending space availability.
SELECTION PROCESS: Students are not accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. If there are more applications than available seats, students will be selected by a lottery number.
Parents will be notified of acceptance into a magnet school by letter. If selected, the letter will also include a commitment form. Commitment forms will be due back by the date listed on the letter.
Parents of magnet students are responsible for all transportation to and from school.
Magnet students may be dropped from enrollment for continuous attendance, tardiness, and/or behavior concerns.
