Richland Two Middle School Magnet Programs

This year all Middle School Magnet interviews, writing samples and activities will be scheduled on February 7, 2015 at Spring Valley High School. Students will be asked to bring a personally meaningful artifact to the interview. This artifact is primarily used as a prop to put the student as ease and give the interview team a way to personalize the interview.  Students will participate in a 15 minute individual interview with a team of two teachers and then move to the auditorium to complete the writing sample.  From there, students applying to certain magnets will move to another area for a hands-on activity.  More details will come out soon, but for now, please be aware of the upcoming important dates listed below.
