Kindergarten Magnet Enrollment Process

Families interested in enrolling their incoming kindergarten student in a magnet school are required to complete and submit an application. Families who have an older student(s) currently enrolled at RSI, SEA or FAIR School Pilgrim Lane must also complete an application for their incoming kindergarten student; siblings of currently enrolled students, who meet the application deadline, will receive a seat through the sibling preference policy. 

If the school has more applicants than space available, new kindergarten students will be selected by lottery.

Grades 1-5 Enrollment Process

Robbinsdale students in grades 1-5 can submit a school transfer form for possible admission. Prospective students residing outside the district can submit an open enrollment form for possible admission. According to Administrative Procedure 509AP, Enrollment Options, new students requesting entrance to RSI must have prior language immersion experience or demonstrate grade level language competency. Typically, new students are able to demonstrate grade level language competency if they are transferring from another immersion school, have a native Spanish speaker in the family or have an extensive Spanish background.
