  • School Choice Facts

    Students who live within our school attendance zone do not have to submit 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 submit a General Choice Transfer Application. Applications are based on available space in the school and are processed in the order in which they are received.

    You are invited to attend our School Choice Event at Hickory Ridge Towne Center, 6075 Winchester Road on January 28, 2023 11a.m.-2p.m.
