Middle School Magnet Program

Arbor Ridge Middle School Magnet Program

***Scroll down for important dates and information about applying for our Magnet Program.***

The Arbor Ridge Middle School Magnet Program is for students in grades six to eight. Students have the opportunity to reach the highest intellectual and behavioral potential in a smaller learning environment. This setting allows students to gain academic success without the pressure of a large, traditional middle school, and will enable them to prepare for greater achievement beyond the eighth grade. This rigorous academic program emphasizes community, responsibility, and leadership so that students are prepared to live as productive and successful citizens in an ever-changing, challenging society.  

Transportation will not be provided for this program for students who reside outside of the Arbor Ridge School zone. 

Participating students enter the program in the sixth grade and a limited number may enter in seventh and eighth grades depending on availability.

Every student (including Arbor Ridge Elementary School students who wish to attend the Arbor Ridge Magnet Program) must apply online through the below link in order to be entered into the lottery.
