In some areas of Denver, DPS uses “enrollment zones” rather than traditional single-school boundaries. An enrollment zone is a geographic area where the students living within it are guaranteed a seat at one of several schools, not just one particular school.
There are many benefits to a shared-access zone, including:
Increased access to high-performing schools
Increased access to transportation options
Priority over students who don’t live in that area
Access to different types of school programs
Schools can better plan for the right number of students
To find out if you live in an enrollment zone, enter your address into School Finder.
