Enrollment and SchoolChoice

Equity is at the heart of DPS’ enrollment process. We believe all families should have equitable access to quality schools, regardless of their background or where they live in Denver. Every DPS student is guaranteed enrollment in their neighborhood – or boundary – school. However, any student who wants or needs to attend a new school for the 2019-20 school year may take part in SchoolChoice. Get more information about SchoolChoice, or see the “FIND, APPLY, REGISTER” buttons below.
