Middle School Open Enrollment

Is your 5th grader interested in STEM? Business? Fine Arts?

Middle school Open Enrollment allows parents/guardians who reside within District boundaries to choose a middle school other than their child’s school of residence – based on classroom space and program availability – so they have the opportunity to participate in one of our unique academies:

  • Bud Carson Middle School Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Academy; 
  • Hawthorne Middle School Business Academy; and
  • Prairie Vista Middle School Fine Arts Academy.

Open Enrollment Steps:

The 2020-2021 Open Enrollment application window is closed. Please refer to the Timeline.

All completed Open Enrollment applications will be assigned a number on a waiting list during a random lottery.

  • Applications will be approved in order of the waiting list, beginning mid-August, if space is available at the requested middle school.
  • Applications received after June 1, 2020 will not be included in the random lottery or added to the waiting list.
