Oscar Mayer Magnet School is a neighborhood magnet school. We provide specialized programs in Montessori and International Baccalaureate in addition to Fine Arts. Any child who is age 5 (on or before September 1) or older and resides within our attendance boundaries will be admitted to our school to grades K-8.

Twin/Multiple Sibling Policy
We have a twin/multiple sibling policy that twins/siblings will be placed into separate rooms. Our Montessori program is designed for students to remain in the same class for three year cycles. We have found that it is in the best interest of siblings to be in separate rooms for the social development and independent growth of each child.
CPS is currently evaluating the admissions process into the preschool program. Updates will be provided here once determinations are made.
