About Rockford Area Schools and the Northwest Suburban Integration School District
Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD) is a collaborative of seven area school districts in the northwest metro. We provide our schools and communities with a variety of programs and services to promote racial equity and cultural awareness. We provide opportunities for students to participate in education programs that are multi-cultural, varied, and racially integrated. Program options are voluntary and available to families based on school choice.
Through magnet programming, families will experience the following:
- An opportunity to experience a K-12 magnet series within one theme:The Arts, International Baccalaureate, or STEM/STEAM.
- A large variety of school choice options within our eight member districts.
- Magnet programming that eliminates, reduces, or prevents racial isolation in elementary and secondary schools.
- Continuation of transportation for magnet students if they move anywhere within member district boundaries.
Entrance into NWSISD magnet schools is application based. Priority application registration is open mid-October through end of December with the lotteries taking place beginning of January.
