Fifth Grade Middle School Application

Northeast Academy Arts Magnet 5th graders recently visited West Side STEM Magnet Middle School and will be visiting Cutler Arts & Humanities Magnet Middle School  on March 25 to explore their middle school choices.


Both are an exciting choice for your child’s middle school education and all 5th grade families need to submit a middle school application by March 31, 2019.  Families can easily complete the application at:


from a phone, tablet, or computer.

Students who want to attend their neighborhood school will be granted that preference but are still required to complete the online application.

You can also learn more about both schools at

or each school’s web site. At both schools:

·         Magnet themes are integrated and engage students through inquiry-based learning, with partners providing in class programs and field trips.


·         The IB Middle Years Programme is being implemented in 6th—10th grades as a framework for teaching and learning.


·         Students receive the same core academic curriculum in literacy, math, science, and social studies.


·         Exploratory classes including art, band, orchestra, music, computers, STEM, world languages, health, and PE are offered.


Families that do not have internet access may request a paper application from their child's school or at the Groton Public Schools Central Office.
