Choosing your school
Will your child start kindergarten, middle or high school in August? Portland has great neighborhood schools ready to welcome you. Families looking for a specialized program must apply for a transfer in February. Families who feel their child needs to attend a neighborhood school other than their assigned school must now file a hardship petition.

Considering a focus option/immersion school?
Students applying at any grade to an arts/sciences focus option school or to a dual language immersion school at the kindergarten level use the school choice lottery. The School Choice transfer cycle is closed for the 2014-15 school year. The 2015-16 lottery transfer cycle will open February 4 for high schools and February 9 for K-8 level schools. School Choice transfers are determined through a centralized lottery, and space is limited. Lottery results are mailed within four to six weeks after the transfer deadline.
Due to a change in the PPS Enrollment & Transfer Policy, students wishing to attend a neighborhood school other than their assigned school in Fall 2015 and students wishing to enter a dual language immersion school at a grade other than kindergarten must file a petition. The petition form will be available when the lottery cycle opens.
