CMS School Choice offers families a menu of magnet and theme-based programs and schools designed to meet your child’s unique interests, talents and learning styles. Choices range from health sciences, the arts, science, technology, engineering, mathematics and entrepreneurship to languages, Montessori, global studies, leadership, public safety and more. Use our calendar to find opportunities to visit our schools!

  • Open Houses – Visit an open house to talk to school staff (usually administrators, coordinators, & teachers), ask your questions, and tour the campus. You may also have the opportunity to visit classrooms that are in session, depending upon the time and location of the session.
  • Information Sessions – Visit information sessions to learn more details about a school’s magnet theme from school staff (usually administrators or coordinators). Parents are usually given the opportunity to ask their questions following an informational presentation. Typically occurring after school hours, these sessions may not provide an opportunity to tour the campus or visit classes in session.
  • School Choice  Information Session – A School Choice Information Session is a one hour meeting with our School Choice team to learn about the different magnet themes, upcoming lottery dates and lottery application process. You will have the opportunity to ask individual questions to our experts at the end of the session.
