School Options and Choice

PSD offers academic excellence through diverse schools and programs. Neighborhood schools offer a rigorous standards-driven curriculum, and gifted, enrichment, and accelerated options. Other schools may have a specific curriculum or focus like International Baccalaureate, Core Knowledge, hands-on learning, dual-language immersion and online learning (see the left-hand menu for more information about options). 

School Choice

PSD's School Choice program allows families to select the school that best meets their child's educational needs based on space availability and eligibility requirements.

Applications for the 2018-19 school year are closed.

The 2019-20 school choice application is now available.

Communication with schools

With the School Choice system, all communication is through email. Parents are responsible for monitoring their applications by checking email and on their account dashboard regarding acceptance of seats or requests to be on a school's wait list.
