How to Enroll at Johnson STEAM Academy

The Cedar Rapids Community School District believes in the value of neighborhood schools. Students who live within a magnet school attendance zone are allowed to automatically attend the magnet school. They are not required to enter the lottery to attend the magnet school serving their neighborhood attendance area.  If you have questions on your attendance zone or enrollment, please contact our main office at 319-558-2174.


Information about Kindergarten registration for the 2019-2020 school year is now available. Please visit our district page How to Enroll for more information.

If a student living outside of a magnet school attendance zone wishes to attend a magnet school, they need to enter the lottery.  Visit the Magnet School Lottery page for more information on lottery enrollment.
