Continuation & Acceptance Letters Deadline
February 7 by 5:30 p.m.
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 basis.
To see a list of available schools and learn more about the application process, download the APPLICATION BOOKLET.
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.
