School Choice & Enrollment

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.

Need a new school?

If you want to enroll in a DPS school other than your neighborhood school, you may take part in SchoolChoice.

Families who want to transfer between schools during the current school year may submit an Administrative Transfer form. Transfer approval is based on space availability, demonstration of genuine need and student’s history. Families who are new to Denver or have moved within DPS during the school year can submit a Mid-Year Entry form. Enrollment at a new school is based on space availability. Contact the office of Choice and Enrollment at 720-423-3493 for information.
