In the Lansing School District, we believe that supporting big dreams with career pathways is the key to student success.  Our career pathways are based on high-demand careers that will foster students' interests and skills -- giving them the competitive edge in jobs, learning and life. 

The Lansing School District offers in-district Schools of Choice.  This means students may attend any school (Magnet or not) within the Lansing School District regardless of where they live. We also offer free bus transportation for all Lansing residents.

IMPORTANT information for 3rd, 6th, & 8th grade families:

If your student is finishing the last grade level available at their current school, you will need to apply for a new school for the 2019-20 school year.  It is best to apply as early as possible as space is limited at many of our schools.  (see link above)  The Main Round application period ends on March 29, 2019.
