We are extremely conscientious about address verification. Your zoned school is where your child’s primary residence is. It is not an apartment you own or rent but do not reside in at the time of application/registration, your place of employment, or any other variation. We retain the right to conduct address investigations after pre-registration and registration is contingent on the results of those investigations.

We do not expect to have seats for children who reside outside of our zone.

Your zoned school is determined by your home address. If you don’t know which school is your zoned school, call 311 or visit the School Search.
