School Overview

Welcome to Mauro-Sheridan Science, Technology and Communications Interdistrict Magnet School, where we draw students and their families from all walks of life!

At our school, we embrace all the things that are leading us together into a new, modern world. While we focus on preparing students to be successful through the academically-rigorous and relevant fields of science, technology and communications, it’s hearing so many different languages at dismissal time and seeing children walking hand in hand to the bus that we think make us really special.

How to Know Mauro-Sheridan Interdistrict Magnet is Right for Your Child:

  • Your child is interested in communication through technology as in the use of video, distance learning, computer science, photography, blogging
  • Your child is interested in inventing useful things or solving problems and embracing technology by asking, “How does it work?”
  • Your child is interested in looking at the world in different ways and using new learning to solve problems or invent new solutions

Unique Ways Your Child Can Learn and Grow Here:

  • An award-winning after-school Robotics Club, which teaches students how to work collaboratively and succeed in real-world project-based environments by developing projects for competition
  • A live morning news program in our state-of-the-art video production studio researched, written, produced and presented by our students plugs them in to valuable production skills for success in a communications career or any other field of work
  • As a NASA Explorer School, we have access to NASA’s people, missions, research and facilities, which means science and education learning is really cool, memorable and real for our kids who will go through life with an unforgettable love of technical learning and a potential aspiration to become astronauts

2013 Lottery Results Data

2013 Lottery Results Data 

In an effort to help families make informed decisions about choosing a school, New Haven Public Schools is publishing last year’s lottery data for each Magnet and Charter School. Although the data change year to year, you can see a snapshot by grade level of how many seats were available for each school. Also, you can see how many applicants applied, how many applicants lived in the neighborhood, and how many applicants had siblings. These numbers reflect a combined total of all first, second and third school choices of each applicant. We hope this information, along with the opportunity to attend open houses, will help families choose schools that will fit the needs of their children.
