Magnet School Enrollment

Hamilton County’s Magnet Schools offer families a choice in selecting an educational program where the curriculum is built around a focused theme. Calvin Donaldson is proud to offer an educational program focused on environmental science. Admission into a magnet school is by application on a space-available basis. Applications are made available yearly from November 1st to January 31st. Seats are then filled by a lottery or random selection process done in February.

The acceptance into a magnet school requires the following commitments from parents/guardians:

  • Provide a minimum of 18 service hours to the school. 
  • Attend at least 2 parent/teacher conferences per year. 
  • Ensure child has good attendance with minimum unexcused absences and tardies.
  • Ensure child follows the "Code of Acceptable Behavior and Discipline Policy" as stated by the Hamilton County Department of Education. 

If any of the above conditions are not met, the child may lose his/her magnet seat and will be expected to attend his/her zoned school.
