We offer choices to suit every kind of student: Traditional schools, Montessori schools, magnet schools with special programming, and Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways programs. Some of our high schools are aligned with area colleges and universities and share courses, providing students with college credits.

Parents of students with special needs who were previously enrolled in a separate setting /self-contained class should report to Special Education Services with their student’s current Individual Education Plan (IEP).

​How are students assigned to schools?

Students are assigned to schools based on their residence. Sometimes a student may be placed at a school other than the assigned school to receive special education, language services, or to accommodate any special circumstances. Students throughout the corporation may apply for admission to the magnet schools regardless of location. Students are admitted based on eligibility and within the limits of controlled capacity and racial basis.

Students entering ninth grade may choose to:

  1. Attend their assigned high school based on their home address
  2. Apply to the high school of their choice under Open Enrollment
  3. Apply to one of the high school magnet programs:

First Step: Eligibility
