Non-Neighborhood Choice Enrollment
Apply to attend a school other than your neighborhood school
Choice enrollment is choosing a school other than your neighborhood school. We always recommend families start by checking out their neighborhood school. But sometimes your neighborhood school isn't the best fit for your student or your family. If this is the case, you can apply to attend another school.
