Maxwell Spanish Immersion Elementary School is a magnet school and admission is by lottery. Students entering Kindergarten or First Grade the following school year may apply for enrollment. Fayette County Public School's Magnet Office handles all applications and controls admission to Maxwell. There are no entrance criteria for the school, but spots are very limited. The application window is typically open from August 15 until October 1 each year, and the link below will be active when applications are being accepted. Families are typically notified sometime after Winter Break if they have been accepted. Questions about the application process should be directed to the Magnet Office.
Students can enroll after First Grade if they demonstrate grade-level proficiency in Spanish language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) as determined by assessments admnistered by Maxwell staff. The Spanish Immersion Program continues beyond Maxwell at Bryan Station Middle and High Schools, so your child will have an opportunity to continue through the Immersion Program through graduation. We strongly encourage families who are applying to Maxwell to continue their child's education until graduation.
