Stapleton's school choice process

Sunday, April 10, 2011 Leave a Comment

Students in Stapleton — including the children here at the combined Westerly Creek Elementary and Swigert-McAuliffe International School — are no longer automatically assigned a particular school, so families have to choose one... In those three neighborhoods, families near the schools get a priority ranking over other families in the city trying to choice in.

So by now everyone has received their letters from DPS. To accommodate Stapleton's huge bubble of kindergartners, Swigert will have 4 kindergarten classes, with 25 kids each. They had planned on three, but when they got to #75 (my son happened to be that one), they still had a waiting list big enough to fill a fourth class.

Did you get your first choice? Were you happy with the outcome?

    I'm happy about my choice of school - but disappointed that my kid won't go to the same school as his best friend down the block. That friend had siblings at Bill Roberts, and we felt the waitlist would be too long there. In reality, I don't know if that ended up being the case.
