Magnet schools or programs offer specialized learning opportunities to students across district

Did you know that Tulsa Public Schools offers 12 specialized school communities that focus on areas such as engineering, dual language learning, and intensive college preparatory studies where students can earn International Baccalaureate or AP Capstone diplomas? The district’s 78 school options include seven lottery magnet schools and five criteria-based magnets. Lottery magnet schools use a randomized selection process to admit students. Students applying for enrollment in a criteria-based magnet must meet specific eligibility standards

Director of Strategic Operations Cesar Dominguez says: “Our enrollment system is designed to make the application process easy for all families. We have one application and one application period where families can apply for any school in the district, including all of our magnet programs.”

The enrollment window for the 2022-2023 school year closes Sunday, Feb. 13.
