SchoolChoice and Enrollment Information

SchoolChoice Round 2 now open – click here to apply

  • Round 1 results – including school acceptance and waitlist information – were sent via email and text. You can also sign in using the link above to check your results. Please note: Because priorities will be used for Round 2, your school waitlist positions may change up or down depending on the actions of other applicants. As an example, students living within a school boundary would move above non-Denver residents on a waitlist. Click here for information on priorities.
  • Round 2 of SchoolChoice is now open. Round 2 is the first-come, first-served segment during which families can apply directly to their preferred schools using the “APPLY” link above. Schools will extend offers as seats become available. Click here for more information on Round 2.

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.
