DeKalb offers ITBS testing for magnet school applicants

DeKalb County Schools is offering ITBS testing for students who want to apply to its magnet programs, including the high achiever magnet schools at Kittredge / Chamblee or Wadsworth / Chapel Hill / Southwest DeKalb, but who lack qualifying test scores.

Who is this test for?

  • Students currently in grades 4, 6, or 8 who did not have qualifying scores for the high achiever programs when they took the ITBS test in 3rd, 5th, or 7th grade
  • Students in homeschool or private school in grades 3 through 8

If your child already has qualifying scores, there’s no need to register for this testing. It is only for students who lack the required test scores for admission to the magnet programs.

Download the PDF for more information and an application for the test. The deadline to apply is Oct. 24, 2014.

    Do you happen to know if they do this for Cobb County as well?

      I don’t know. If you’ll check the web site for the particular magnet school you’re interested in, it should tell you how to apply. I’m not sure their magnet schools require test scores. The one I looked at just asks for transcripts. It does say that kids from private schools or home school can apply.

    I’m confused. My child has to re-test. The re-test scores are not available until Jan. 31, 2015. Application deadline for the magnet programs ends Jan 28, 2015. Do you have any clarity on this at all? Thanks.

      I’m sorry. I don’t know why I didn’t see your comment sooner. If you haven’t done so already, contact the magnet office of DCSS.
