Hello and welcome to the North Springs High School Website.

If you have any additional questions or would like additional information about the Magnet program, please reach out to our program coordinator, Mr. James Landreau at


Please find below information pertaining to the Magnet application for the 2023-2024 school year!


A few reminders about magnet eligibility, a student must reside at a Fulton County Schools address or be zoned for a Fulton County School. Unfortunately, students residing in APS district (while still Fulton County) are not eligible for program admission. If you live outside of FCS district you can apply if you will be living within FCS district by the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year. Proof of residency is required as part of the enrollment process.


NSHS Admission requirements:

Must have an overall Cumulative GPA of 80 (B) or higher.

- Must have an 80 or higher grade in current Fine arts course (for VPA or Dual magnet applicants)

- Must have an 85 or higher grade in current Math/Science courses (for Math/Science or Dual applicants)

- Magnet students are held to high expectations for attendance and discipline as these can affect program admission.
