School Placement & Transfers

School Placement

School assignment is based on the location of the family residence within a school boundary, and that school is called the neighborhood school.

Neighborhood elementary schools are grouped into clusters that feed into middle schools and high schools. If there is no space at the neighborhood school, the student will be overflowed to a school within the same cluster; the student will be placed on the neighborhood school's waitlist and will be re-enrolled at the neighborhood school when a space becomes available, which can happen up to the 14th day of school.

Parents of overflowed students should work with daycare provider near the neighborhood school to be placed on their waitlist, in anticipation of a possible school reassignment.
