Fairchild Wheeler Interdistrict Magnet High School Campus

June 17th, 2013 · 5 Comments · Education

This video, from the city’s website, provides a virtual tour of the $87 million, 250,000-square-foot Fairchild Interdistrict Magnet High School Campus scheduled to open for the upcoming school year. It’s three high schools in one, visible from the Route 25-8 Connector, with 1,500 students from the Bridgeport region grades 9 – 12.

The campus will house an Information Technology and Software Engineering High School, A Zoological Science, Research and Biotechnology High School in partnership with Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo and a Physical Sciences, Engineering and Aerospace/Hydrospace Science High School. The state financed the majority of construction costs.

    How many slots have been filled out of the 1500 universe?

    In its first year, the enrollment will be 750 (9th & 10th grade) and reportedly they are 20 suburban slots away from being filled.

    When I looked at this post yesterday the video was a bunch of chicks in a hot tub. Did they make it? I am thinking they were into physical sciences. :)

    I have spoken to many students from the 8th grade and to be honest, I was shocked at all of the students who were accepted to this $87 million educational dream. I just heard today from teachers at High Horizons Magnet they were having a problem attracting suburbanites. BTW the principal at the magnet school, Dr. MEEKINS is one of the finest principals in the City. I hope they become more discriminatory when accepting applications. If the school wants to be a cut above, it needs to set the standard now!

    Btw I was not referring to the 8th grade students at the Magnet schools. I was referring to Luis Marin, Dunbar and Curiale. When I say shocked I mean … Are you fxxx!xx kidding me!
