Rampello Application Information
2020-2021 School Year
Application window is now open! Go here before December 31st at midnight to apply: https://www.sdhc.k12.fl.us/doc/613/choice-dates
There is no preference in the lottery for applying on the 25th versus a later date within the application window. Families will be notified of offers via email mid February.
Rampello is 100% magnet which means ALL of our students must apply through the Hillsborough County Public Schools Magnet/CHOICE Program Office.
Once you have applied through the school district website, we have an additional step to the application process if a parent works downtown. You DO NOT have to work downtown, but please realize Rampello does not provide bussing. Families that have a parent that works in downtown get preference in the lottery but are not guaranteed a spot. Please fill out the blue link below for this extra shot in the lottery:
Please Note: It is advised to have a strong alternate school choices on your magnet application as we have limited enrollment. Seats are EXTREMELY limited. Also, please remember to complete the verification form for Downtown Employment Preference above.
* If you have a student currently attending Rampello, and are applying for a sibling, make sure you include your currently enrolled child's student number in the online application. It will HELP your other child's shot in the lottery. Again, please be aware that siblings are not guaranteed a spot.
*If you are currently a Rampello student, you DO NOT need to apply again.
