The Deadline Is Approaching Top School Lottery Applications In Hartford Province

In Hartford, CT (wfsb)-
The school is the second half of this year may be only a few weeks, but the parents said that they had been thinking about next year.

The lottery deadline to get into one of greater Hartford's magnet schools is a little more than a month away.

Working inside a dark studio, Nicole Ellis molded clay, moved a piece and snapped a picture.

“It's stop motion, Claymation,” she explained. “I really love to animate.”

Ellis, a sophomore from Vernon, said she hoped to one day turn her passion into a profession.

It's at the Journalism and Media Academy in Hartford that she said she's getting a hands-on learning experience.

"The biggest part is all the technology and the teachers willing to help you through all of it,” Ellis said.

Ellis said she catches a bus every morning at 6 to make it to Hartford. She's not alone.

"We've got students coming from Vernon, South Windsor, Bloomfield, Enfield, all over the place," said Steve Hodges, a teacher.

At JMA, there's a state-of-the-art television control room and radio station WQTQ 89.9 broadcasts live from it in the morning.

JMA is one of more than 40-themed inter-district magnet schools in the capital region. It's open to kindergarten - high school students from the 29 Hartford-area districts.

Since interest in the schools is typically high, space is limited. That's why school officials said students must apply and be selected through a lottery.

While media plays a major roll at JMA, more importantly, teachers said the students learn lessons they can use through life.

"That's one of the biggest selling points I tell my students,” Hodges said. “No matter what you do, if you're a veterinarian or if you are a house painter, you need to be able to communicate."

For interested students and their parents, there will be two choice information sessions next week.

The deadline to apply for the regional school choice lottery is Feb. 27.
