Enrollment Zones

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.

To learn more about the schools in an enrollment zone, call the SchoolChoice hotline or view the enrollment zone guides below.
