The 1st Round DPS Choice Application window is from January 15th through February 15th at 4pm. 2nd Round Choice applications will be available in early April. The application is only available online.  Please visit to apply.

Families submit one SchoolChoice application per student, on which they rank their students’ top 12 school preferences. You can upload all required documentation on this website, so there is no need to bring in any paperwork to the school. You must create a SchoolChoice account or use an existing DPS Parent Portal log-in to begin your application. DPS then matches students to schools based on those preferences, as well as school admission priorities and available space. Families will receive their school placement results in late March.
