Disney II High School (and other schools still open)
The application period for Disney II Magnet High School is opened. I didn’t realize it will require Stanine 5 in Reading and Math (although now I think I recall some of you mentioning this. True, it’s not a SE level cut-off but it certainly should set the school apart in that every student will be average or above.
Will there be a proximity lottery and tiers as with other magnets? I assume so… And we’ve heard that Disney II elem kids will get automatic entry to this school, regardless of stanine, correct?
Who do you think the school will initially attract? I feel like most kids have made peace with their high school decision so this is probably a good year to get in… when other people have already made up their minds about other schools.
I noticed that there are charters that are still taking students. I guess they can’t pull any off the 10,000 kid waiting list? (or whatever that number was…)
Disney II Magnet High School
Disney II Magnet School will expand to the high school level in fall 2013. The program will offer a college prep curriculum with an emphasis on fine
arts and technology integration. Located at 3900 N. Lawndale Ave., Disney II Magnet’s high school campus will open at the ninth grade and add one grade each year until it serves grades 9-12.
Students will be selected through a computerized lottery; to be eligible for the lottery, students must have minimum stanines of 5 in both reading comprehension and total math on their seventh grade ISAT (or another acceptable standardized test). Students with an IEP or 504 Plan must have seventh grade reading and math stanines that equal at least 10.
