  • Here's a look at what changes will be in effect next school year.


    As with any change, in this case our change to magnet status, other changes happen! The most notable change coming for the 2023-24 school year is our change in school hours.


    Beginning in August 2023, our school hours will be 7 a.m. to 2:10 p.m. Buses will still be provided for students who qualify. Our after school activities, including sports, will have adjusted timing. We are grateful to have other magnet middle schools in Wichita who are helping us finalize plans for next school year.


    Students who live in Coleman's boundaries:

    • If you live in Coleman’s neighborhood boundaries, you will not need to complete a magnet application to attend Coleman. You will still experience the same great Coleman community, but will see the environmental theme carried throughout all subjects. 


    Students who do not live in Coleman's boundaries:

    • If you do not live in Coleman's neighborhood boundaries, you will need to complete the magnet application.
    • Access the magnet application by clicking here: Magnet Application & Information
    • January 27, 2023 is the middle school magnet application deadline.



    Coleman Environmental Magnet Middle School will be a neighborhood magnet, allowing students who live in the school’s attendance boundaries to attend without having to apply. Students who live outside the attendance boundary can apply to attend the magnet through the regular magnet application process.
