    The Interdistrict Magnet School offers special programs and student enrollment to area students in Grades K - 5. The school is hosted by Danbury Public Schools. Our partner districts are Brookfield, New Fairfield, Newtown, Redding, and New Milford.
    The early years of elementary school are crucial to the way children define the world and their place in it. The Western Connecticut Academy for International Studies is an innovative and challenging elementary magnet school designed to begin preparing children in Grades K through 5 to live and thrive in a global community.
    Our International Studies theme is centered around the concept of peace and our role as peace-keepers in the world. We offer a Spanish Instruction Program beginning in Kindergarten and a technology-rich environment including student laptop computers for each grade level and Promethean interactive whiteboards.
    Names of students whose applications are submitted after the deadline date will be added to the waiting list.https://crecwebssl.crec.org/ws/default.aspx?formname=onlineform&object=WCAIS.dbo.wsWCAISLotteryAppForm&s_method=Everyone_DisplayFormhttps://crecwebssl.crec.org/ws/default.aspx?formname=onlineform&object=WCAIS.dbo.wsWCAISLotteryAppFormSpanish&s_method=Everyone_DisplayFormshapeimage_5_link_0shapeimage_5_link_1

FOOD IN SCHOOL
Beginning with the first day of school, no food (either homemade or store-bought) can be brought to school as a classroom treat. This is to ensure the safety of our students with allergies or certain illnesses. Each student may only eat food brought from his or her own home, or food provided by the school cafeteria staff. Please remind your child(ren) how important it is to not share food with others or accept food offered by others.

CHANGES IN YOUR CHILD’S DISMISSAL PROCEDURE
For changes in dismissal, you must call the school at 203-778-7462 before noon and speak to the school secretary. Please do not email your child’s teacher with changes in dismissal (teachers are busy teaching or may have a substitute) and please do not leave a voice mail message which may not be heard in time.https://sites.google.com/a/danbury.k12.ct.us/danbury-school-lunch-program/http://www.danbury.k12.ct.us/districtinfo/busroutes/busAIS.htmshapeimage_15_link_0shapeimage_15_link_1
