    Opens 8:00 AM Monday, October 2, 2023


    The SLPS Student Recruitment and Student Placement offices look forward to assisting families interested in attending a Saint Louis Public Schools Magnet School.

    Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent makes. Do you have a child who doesn’t necessarily “fit the mold” offered at your current school? Or are you looking for a change in direction as your child advances from one level to the next? If so, there’s an exciting educational alternative you need to know about! It’s the St. Louis Magnet Schools program.

    For over thirty-six years, St. Louis City families have experienced extraordinary educational opportunities at St. Louis Magnet Schools.
