Apply at the DATA Middle School Magnet Program

Start with 3 simple steps.

Shadow Visit (Optional)

Parent or Guardian approval is needed.

Students and parents are encouraged to sign up for one of our Shadowing opportunities.

Come and learn about what makes DATA Middle School unique, tour the campus, and speak with teachers and students about their experiences at DATA Middle School. Parents and students will go on separate tours designed to present information relevant to each group. A member of our DATA Administrative Team leads parents, and one of our DATA Ambassadors leads students during the tour.

Shadowing is open to all students who would be eligible for submitting a lottery form for the upcoming year. We can’t wait to show you what it really means to be part of the #DATAfamily!

The Design And Technology Academy at Ed White is a 6th – 8th grade, Pre-AP program, open to all eligible students, regardless of district boundaries. Prospective students must have passed their STAAR tests, have an 85 or better average (90, if out of district), and have good conduct. Students meeting the application criteria are selected through an open lottery process. If the number of applications exceeds the number of seats available, students will be placed on a waitlist and notified when an open seat is available. Upon successful completion of the MS program, students will have automatic acceptance into the DATA HS program at Roosevelt.

Applications are accepted year round, but must be submitted by January to participate in the lottery.
