S.T.E.M. Program Overview

  • The Rogers Elementary School S.T.E.M. Magnet Program is a Northwest SuburbanIntegration School District (NWSISD) magnet school for grades K-5 (beginning in September 2022, for the 2022-23 school year, we will become a K-4 school). Rogers Elementary STEM Magnet School provides students the opportunity of a S.T.E.M. based education with a focus on engineering that is exciting, challenging, and relevant.  Student learning is enhanced by scientific inquiry and exploration, project-based learning, integration of S.T.E.M. across subject areas, and by using the engineering design process.

     Magnet schools are public schools of choice, offering comprehensive, high-quality, thematic curriculum intended to attract students from a wide range of racial, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.  Students who live outside a magnet school’s attendance zone can apply for an opportunity to enroll in the magnet school or program.  Entrance into Rogers Elementary and other NWSISD magnet schools and programs are application based and open to all students who live within the seven member district boundaries. 

     NWSISD is a collaborative of seven area school districts in the northwest metro providing schools and communities with a variety of programs and services to promote racial equity and cultural awareness.  The seven member districts of NWSISD include Anoka-Hennepin School District, Brooklyn Center Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, Elk River Area School District, Fridley Public Schools, Osseo Area Schools, and Rockford Area Schools.

    Entrance into NWSISD magnet schools (including Rogers Elementary) is application based.  Priority application registration is open mid-October through end of December with the lotteries taking place the beginning of January.  To learn more about NWSISD, its application timeline and to apply via online application, please visit www.nws.k12.mn.us.
