Frazier International Magnet School is a high-performing K-8 school of choice in Chicago. Frazier was honored by Gov. Quinn in 2010 when the Governor proclaimed October 25 - 31, 2010 as "Frazier International Beating the Odds and Educating Our Children Week in Illinois." Chicago Public Schools also chose Frazier as the district's nominee for Magnet School of the Year, Frazier's principal Colette Unger-Teasley as Magnet Principal of the Year, and leader Faren D'Abell as Magnet School Teacher of the Year.
91.9% of Frazier students met or exceeded state standards on the 2010 ISAT test, ranking Frazier #21 out of more than 500 elementary schools in Chicago including selective enrollment, magnet, neighborhood, and charter schools.
Frazier International Magnet School is a non-selective enrollment magnet school. As such, no testing or pre-requisites are necessary for admission. The only requirements for admission are that the prospective student lives in the city of Chicago and that he or she will be eligible to enter Kindergarten through eighth grade. Frazier International utilizes a random lottery system.
The P-20 Council’s April 27, 2011 meeting was held at this exemplary school. Council members toured the school and observed inspired teaching and eager learning.
