IMPORTANT LOTTERY UPDATE, APPLICANTS CHECK YOUR INBOX! Shortly both the RSCO Magnet and HPS District Lotteries will run!  The HPS Office of School Choice and RSCO Magnet & Open Choice Office will inform families of student placements for the 2016-2017 School Year.  Below are some important steps that you can take to prepare. 



·        Find and secure the application login and password that you used to set up each of your school applications

·        Frequently check the email that you listed in the applications, as those who applied on-line will also receive notification and can accept placement on-line

·        Check your mail as placement notification letters will be mailed to all families that completed the RSCO & HPS District Choice applications.


·        Accepting a Hartford District Choice placement insures your child a seat for the new 2016 school year.

·        Accepting DOES NOT impact any Magnet Placement that you may receive through the Magnet Lottery




·         Do you have a 4 or 5 year old who still needs to enroll for PreK or Kindergarten for next year?

·         Did you miss the deadline to apply to the lottery?

·         Are you new to Hartford and need to enroll your child in PreK or Kindergarten for Fall 2016?



·         HPS is honored to be the recipient of the Donna Grady-Creer award recognizing Hartford Public Schools as Magnet Schools of America School District of the Year!


·         The 2016 national merit awards, at the 34th National Conference on Magnet Schools, also acknowledged Environmental Sciences Magnet School, Kinsella Magnet School of Performing Arts, Pathways Academy of Technology and Design, and the Sport and Medical Sciences Academy as Magnet Schools of Excellence


·         Annie Fisher STEM Magnet, Breakthrough Magnet School I & II, University High School of Science & Engineering, Capital Preparatory Magnet School, Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy, and Noah Webster MicroSociety Magnet School were recognized as Magnet Schools of Distinction.
