With ten magnet schools in Northside ISD, there are more opportunities than ever before for students to choose their future.

The District now offers eight magnet high schools and two magnet middle schools. Applications open Nov. 29 for the 2022-23 school year.

All magnet schools are planning Open Houses and the District will host two Magnet Fairs in December for families at the Northside Sports Gym and Paul Taylor Field House/Northside Activity Center.
