STEAM Enrollment through NWSISD

Montrose Elementary School of Innovation is a Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD) magnet school.  Montrose STEAM students receive an education with lessons that integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics concepts.  Through these lesson experiences students collaborate, communicate, critically think, and use creativity to develop a deeper understanding of STEAM concepts and the world around them.

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 Montrose Elementary School of Innovation and other NWSISD magnet schools and programs is 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 Schools, Brooklyn Center Community Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, ISD728 (Elk River area), Fridley Public Schools, Osseo Area Schools, and Rockford Area Schools.


Priority application registration is open mid-October through end of December with lotteries taking place beginning of January.  To learn more about NWSISD, its application timeline and to apply via online application, please visit
