Magnet School Exception
Norwich Public Schools has launched two theme-based Magnet schools, Moriarty Magnet Elementary School, which focuses on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and Wequonnoc Magnet Elementary School, which focuses on Arts and Technology.
The students are picked through a computer lottery system. Any student in the Norwich Public Schools district can apply to attend Moriarty or Wequonnoc. If a student is chosen to attend one of the schools, they will go to said school until they graduate fifth grade or move out of district.
Currently, NPS is focused on bringing new students in at the kindergarten level. All grade levels can apply to go to either magnet school, as new spots open, students will be picked from a wait list.
Note: If your child has been chosen to attend either school, contact the school for further information regarding transportation.
