Program Application Requirements

Magnet (World Language)

Deadline:  12/13/2019
Grades Served: K-8
Application Requirements
None
Selections
Students must submit a Choice Elementary Schools application between October and December. Applicants are selected by computerized lottery. Priority is given to applicants with a sibling who is currently enrolled in the school in grade K-7, and who will remain enrolled in the school for the coming school year. After siblings are accommodated, 40% of remaining seats for the entry-grade level are allocated for applicants who live within a 1.5 mile radius of the school, and remaining entry-grade level seats are evenly distributed among the four socio-economic tiers. For all grades other than the entry-grade level, seats remaining after siblings are accommodated are filled through a general computerized lottery.
How to Apply
Students can apply online or via paper Choice Elementary Schools application by visiting go.cps.edu.
