Applications are available from the end of January to the beginning of March, at any City Hall Room 317 or at www.bridgeportedu.net. After filling out the application it must be returned to the address listed on the application. The application will be given a number for identification and stamped with receipt date.
A lottery is held for each grade level at which time the applicants will be numbered in the order they are pulled.
Prior to the lottery Kindergarten applicants will take a language dominance test to determine which Kindergarten class they will qualify for, English or Spanish bilingual. There are 24 seats for the English dominant Kindergarten and 24 seats for the Spanish bilingual Kindergarten.
The applicants requesting Grades 1 to 8 will be assessed based on their school's information. These applicants will make up a waiting list for each grade level in the event that a student leaves the Multicultural Magnet School. The waiting list will expire on the day of the next year's lottery when the new list is created.
