magnet schools transfers

Tulsa Public Schools has a long tradition of magnet schools. Students are required to complete an application process to be considered for acceptance into a magnet school or program. Admissions to the three types of magnet programs are as follows:

Interest Magnets: Student interest is the determining factor for admission to our four high schools offering a wide variety of specific programs.
Interest magnet schools include Central, Hale, McLain and Webster High Schools.

Lottery Magnets: Students are selected based on a random drawing from each geographic quadrant of the city to fill available spaces.
The lottery schools include:

  • Elementary schools: Dual Language Program, Eisenhower International School, Mayo Demonstration School and Zarrow International School
  • Middle/junior high schools: Monroe Demonstration School, Thoreau Demonstration Academy, Will Rogers College Junior High School
  • High schools: Will Rogers College High

Academic Magnets: Students are selected on the basis of grades, test scores, attendance, and teacher recommendation.
Academic magnet schools include: Carver and Edison middle schools, Booker T. Washington High School and Edison Preparatory High School and Tulsa Engineering Academy at Memorial High School.

Our magnet schools provide opportunities for your child to focus on his or her special interests while receiving a solid foundation in traditional academic areas.

Some magnet schools have a competitive entrance process requiring an entrance examination, interview, or audition. Other magnet schools use a lottery system. Most magnet schools concentrate on a particular discipline or area of study such as:

  • International Baccalaureate
  • Micro Society
  • Language Immersion
  • Fine and Performing Arts
  • Restaurant, Lodging and Health Management
  • Scientific & Technological Utilization and
  • Broadcasting and Digital Media.
