Welcome to the RMMSF!
Regional Multicultural Magnet School Foundation
Founded in 1991 and located in southeastern Connecticut, RMMS was the first national kindergarten through fifth grade magnet school established in response to a need for desegregated, equal opportunity education. It is located in the beautiful and historic city of New London. A portion of the school is the restored Gothic style Bulkeley School for Boys founded in the 1880’s. To learn more visit:
Students from southeastern Connecticut districts enter a lottery system to attend RMMS. K through 5 students are immersed in an environment where they learn to appreciate cultural differences and celebrate the diversity of the world’s communities.
2016 found the school celebrating its 25th anniversary and becoming an International Baccalaureate Candidate School!
To mark this significant milestone, a three-day conference was held on Race and Gender in Education. Additionally, students and families attended the third annual Multicultural Dance Festival at St. Sophia’s. The weekend culminated with the MagnetPalooza music festival at The Hygienic Arts Park.
The anniversary celebration brought together dignitaries, the community and alums, as well as former and current RMMS families and staff. To view videos and slide shows of anniversary events, and also experience RMMS alumni memories, click here.
The RMMS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports the mission and programs of the school through fundraising and endowment.
