In order to attend Townview the student must apply to the school in which they wish to attend. The applications can be found on the DISD website. The deadlines for early applications used to be in January I believe. Any DISD student who meets the criteria can apply. There are no attendance boundries for magnet schools as long as you reside in DISD. My daugther graduated in 2010 from the Law Magnet at Townview and I encourage your child to apply. It was a wonderful experience from a student and parent standpoint.
