DPIS is a neighborhood, or attendance area school and a choice school; we are not an option school. New students are assigned to an attendance area school based on home address. Continuing students remain at their current school until they complete the highest grade.

Remember that you need to enroll for Dearborn Park International School through the standard district enrollment process.

To enroll your children in Dearborn Park Elementary School, you must live within the attendance area for DPIS and enroll in as it is your neighborhood school, or apply through choice school during open enrollment. (Open Enrollment for 2015-16 was Feb. 23, 2015–Mar. 06, 2015 for choice schools.)

To check your child(ren)’s current school assignment, use the district’s new Student Assignment Tool.

You can see the current attendance area for your address using the Address Lookup Tool.Please be aware there may be a change the attendance area for your address. Boundary maps for the 2015-16 school year are now posted on the Growth Boundaries maps page.

To find out if you live in the DPIS attendance area, and to check that it should be your child(ren)’s neighborhood school,
