  • School Choice Facts

    Students who live within out school attendance zone do not have to submite a school choice application. They can simply register when the early registration period opens for the new school year.

    Students who live outside the attendance zone can subit a General Choice Transfer Application beginning January 26, 2021. Applications are based on available space in the school and are processed in the order in which they are recieved.
