Magnet Schools
Magnet schools are public schools of choice, offering comprehensive, high-quality, thematic curriculum intended to attract students from a wide range of racial, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Students who live outside a magnet school’s attendance zone can apply for an opportunity to enroll in the magnet school or program. Entrance into Earle Brown Elementary and other NWSISD magnet schools and programs is application based and open to all students who live within the eight member district boundaries.

The eight member districts of NWSISD include Anoka-Hennepin School District, Brooklyn Center Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, Elk River Area School District, Fridley Public Schools, Mounds View Public Schools, Osseo Area Schools, and Rockford Area Schools.
