From Oct. 2 through Nov. 13, families can submit an application for enrollment to any district school outside their attendance zone with the Neighborhood Schools and Enrollment Options Office. Choice Applications may be submitted either online at sandiegounified.org/school-choice-application or in person at the Enrollment Center, 4100 Normal St., Annex 12.
School choice gives students the chance to enroll next year in magnet programs or schools outside their neighborhood boundaries. The program is open to all San Diego Unified students and those attending other schools in San Diego County, including charter schools.
Each year, more than 10,000 students apply for the school choice program, with more than 70 percent of them receiving a spot in their first choice of schools. Families within San Diego Unified will receive an enrollment catalogue in the mail. The catalogue is also available online in English at: https://www.sandiegounified.org/enrollmentguide and in Spanish at: https://www.sandiegounified.org/enrollmentguide-spanish
San Diego Unified offers personalized consultations for families who want to discuss their options with an enrollment specialist. The multilingual staff at the Family Welcome and Enrollment Center is available at 619-260-2410 or firstname.lastname@example.org to provide assistance Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
