How SchoolChoice Works: Find, Apply, Register

Research the best school options for your student

Sign into your SchoolChoice account, or create an account. We recommend using your DPS Parent Portal username and password.* Once signed in, you can:

  • Apply for Mid-Year Entry to a school other than your neighborhood school (if you are new to Denver or your address has changed).
  • Apply to an Early Childhood Education program for 2020-21 during SchoolChoice Round 2, open for ECE only through April 2021.

*If you are new to DPS and do not have a Parent Portal account, you must first pre-enroll at any DPS school. Once you have pre-enrolled, use your student ID to create a Parent Portal account.

You can also access the SchoolChoice application by creating a SchoolChoice account using your email address.
