2018-19 Magnet Season Tours and Magnet Nights

Yep, it’s nearly that time. Let’s wax nostalgic as when we hit 2019, my youngest graduates high school. But fear not we’re happy to post magnet tours in *THIS* post (simply post your magnet tours & magnet nights in the comments and we’ll get them into the main post).

NorthEast, NorthWest, South, East and West, Magnet Nights are an easy way to visit multiple magnets in one location in one night. The link to that list is here.

And if you’d like to see the new magnet programs opening up in 2018-19, visit here.

Magnet season officially runs from Monday, October 2nd through Thursday, November 9th. But tours have started already, as have some school magnet nights. Also look to see about Magnet Open Houses, as some schools have started having weekend or evening open houses to get an even better idea of the school climate.

Please make sure any magnet you choose has transportation if that is important to you!

Magnet Tours and Meet the Magnet Nights for 2017-2018

Magnet season is nearly here. The eCHOICES Application opens on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016 with a deadline of Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016. Meet the Magnets nights usually do not require reservations. Most school tours DO. Please check with the school’s website to reserve your spot or confirm they do not require advanced registration.

Please share your magnet info such as tours and magnet nights in the comments and I will add them to this list. Questions? Ask those in the comments as well.

Let the games begin!

2016-17 Magnet Season Tours

Since the first posts about magnet tours have started coming in, here’s the official “post your magnet tour schedule here” thread. I will cut and paste all tours and magnet nights from the comments into this main post. Thanks to all who help with this list. Last year’s magnet application ‘season’ was October 1 through November 15.

This year, the deadline is November 13. That they pick Friday the 13th amuses me to no end, but do NOT try to submit in those waning hours, as you will experience delays and likely great sadness.

Meet the Magnets Middle School
Flyer 2015 2 (1) (1) High Schools

Walter Reed Middle School is having their annual Meet the High Schools night on October 7th. Last year they had over 40 High schools represented.

First, the Meet the Magnet Night for SFV-ish middle schools will be Wednesday, September 30th, at Sepulveda Middle School from 6-8 pm. Parents will attend an opening informational session followed by four 20-minute sessions put on by different schools of interest. This is a HUGE time saver for parents to see four schools in one night and figure out which schools to tour.

Meet the Magnet Night for SFV-ish high schools will be Thursday, October 1st, at Monroe High School from 6-8 pm, and again starts with an overview session and then families can break out to four sessions. Students are welcome.

Post 2015-16 Magnet Accepted/Wait List Info Here

Magnet letters have hit email boxes and are posted on the E-choices website.

For posterity or for laughs, feel free to post the following:

School

This helps people to know

A) They’re not alone

This is a stressful time for many, so deep breathing and happy banter.

Thanks!
