NWSISD Magnet Programs
Northwest Suburban Integration School District
Earle Brown Elementary, Brooklyn Center Middle and Brooklyn Center High STEAM schools are Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD) magnet schools. STEAM is a standards-based program that adds arts to the current curricular focus of preparing students in the concepts of science, technology, engineering and math – often referred to as STEM. Brooklyn Center Community School's STEAM magnet schools engage students in inquiry and project based learning and encourages collaboration amongst students.
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 Brooklyn Center Community magnet schools and other NWSISD magnet schools and programs is application based and open to all students who live within the seven member district boundaries.
NWSISD is a collaborative of seven area school districts in the northwest metro providing schools and communities with a variety of programs and services to promote racial equity and cultural awareness. The seven member districts of NWSISD include Anoka-Hennepin School District, Brooklyn Center Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, Elk River Area School District, Fridley Public Schools, Osseo Area Schools, and Rockford Area Schools.
