With all the talk about school choice, you might ask, "What are my options?"   Don't fret!  We've laid out all your options below and will help guide you through making the best decision for your child.

Attend your Zoned School
All families living in Davidson County are assigned to a school based on where you live. This is the school you are automatically enrolled in when you register. Some families may be zoned to two
schools (zoned options). Make plans to visit and explore your zoned school. This could be the best choice for your family. Find your zoned school.

Apply for a school through the Optional Schools Application Period.
The Optional Schools Application gives parents a chance to apply for schools outside of their zone
such as magnet and optional schools as well as zoned schools with availability. Applications turned in after December 3, 2013 will be added to the ends of applicable school wait lists. If there is no waitlist and seats are available at a school, you will be accepted on a first-come first-service bases.
View the list of Schools and find out how to apply.


Apply  to a Charter School
Metro Schools has expanded options by welcoming 23 charter schools. Enrollment to charter schools
is open to all Davidson County students. You may apply to select charter schools on the Optional Schools Application. To apply to a charter school not included on the application, contact the school.  Learn more about our charter schools.


With so many options, how do I choose the best school for my child?

To help you find the right fit for your child, we've designed an interactive tool that guides you through all available schools, narrowing them down to a short list based on the needs of your child and your family. It asks you to choose among options based on:

  • Academics
  • Areas of Interest
  • Extra-curricular Activities
  • Geography
  • Scheduling
  • Before & After School Needs

Before you get started, let's go over some important considerations:

  • What does your child like?
  • Where does he or she excel?
  • What makes him or her unique?
  • What motivates him or her?

Also consider any personal preferences you may have:

  • Family history at a school
  • Friends attending a particular school
  • Your family likes the neighborhood
  • Particular programs or activities

Now that you have some criteria, we've designed an interactive tool that guides you through all available schools, narrowing them down to a short list based on the needs of your child and your family.
