After the application period has closed, ALL prospective students, will take a mandatory assessment test, regardless of other criteria. Applicants will be notified via email of their virtual assessment time. Students must have a working computer with camera, and will be tested from among the following list of topics.
Inclusion in the magnet admissions lottery will be contingent upon the successful screening through the mandatory assessment test, state test scores (SBAC, CAST), and report card grades.
