Families interested in enrolling their child in a magnet school for the 2017 - 2018 school year are required to complete and submit an application. Applications are currently available at http://magnetlottery.rdale.org/. Paper copies of the magnet applications are also available at all schools and at the Education Service Center, 4148 Winnetka Avenue North, New Hope. Incoming kindergarten students with siblings currently enrolled in School of Engineering and Arts (SEA), Robbinsdale Spanish Immersion School (RSIS), or The FAIR School who meet the application deadline will automatically be enrolled through the sibling preference policy. Sibling families are required to complete and submit an application by the application deadline. If the school has more applicants than space available, new kindergarten students will be selected by lottery.
Robbinsdale Area Schools is pleased to offer tuition-free, all-day kindergarten at all 10 elementary schools, including RSIS, SEA, and FAIR. Half-day placements are available upon parent request.
