To serve our families in the selection of a school, we created a user-friendly system called SchoolChoice, which streamlines school enrollment processes to one form and one timeline, regardless of what type of DPS school you’re interested in. We also created this annual Enrollment Guide to provide more comprehensive information on the programs and performance of all of the schools DPS has to offer.

These are your schools, and we’re committed to doing more to keep you connected to all of the critically important work going on inside them.
