cAll profiled schools are dedicated magnets, which means that all students have chosen to attend and all students participate in the magnet program. One exception, Hoggard, is a dedicated magnet for grades 1-5, but serves 100 percent neighborhood zone students for kindergarten. Percentages for residential zones indicate the number of seats allotted to neighborhood students. Other priorities for selection-sibling attending, socioeconomic status, etc.-may be involved and are not indicated in this table.
dA school may not have received Magnet Schools Assistance program grant funding directly, but may have benefited from services provided by the host district and central magnet office that were funded by this program.
eFAIR is operated by WMEP, an interdistrict consortium. The school building is located in Crystal, Minn., a suburb served by Robbinsdale Area Schools.
