    Wondering which magnet school you would attend?  

    AACPS Students: To apply, you need your lunch number (Student ID Number) and your password used to access computers at school. Sign up now for AACPS password reset. (Once you have signed up, you can reset it yourself if/when the last password you used no longer functions.  Access SIGN UP and password RESET links here.)  Computer techs in each school can also assist with password resets. The Magnet office cannot reset passwords.  Non-AACPS students create a user name/password upon initial application.
