SchoolChoice Resources Available for Families 

The 2020-21 SchoolChoice application window opens Jan. 15, so now’s the time our families begin thinking about their school options for next year. To support in this important decision, we put together plenty of resources, including the annual Great Schools Enrollment Guides, now available in schools and online. These colorful guides are the go-to resource for information on all DPS schools.

There’s also the mobile-friendly School Finder search tool. And our annual School Expo Week is scheduled for Jan. 21-23. Meet school leaders, learn about SchoolChoice, and get help filling out your application. Need a refresher on SchoolChoice? Watch this video.

Enrollment and Registration

There are a few different processes you will go through depending on your specific situation:

Do you need to enroll in a DPS school? The first step is determining your neighborhood – or boundary – school. This is the school at which your student has a guaranteed seat. Click here to determine your neighborhood school.

Are you interested in attending a school other than your boundary school? You may take part in SchoolChoice, which offers a transparent, equitable way for your family to choose the best school for your student.

Finally, getting registered at the school in which you are enrolled is addressed below as well.


Find your neighborhood school

Are you a Denver resident new to DPS? You may enroll directly at the neighborhood school that serves your address. Click here to determine your neighborhood school. To enroll, contact the school office directly for registration dates, forms and required documents.

In some parts of Denver, DPS uses shared boundary enrollment zones. An enrollment zone is a geographic area in which students are guaranteed a seat at one of several schools, rather than one particular school. Click here for more information on DPS enrollment zones.
