The Bellevue School District is experiencing unprecedented growth and over-crowding at most of our schools. Therefore, it is important that we verify proof of residency for all students. We review non-standard residency arrangements to ensure the District is in compliance with Washington State Laws and that policies and procedures are implemented equitably. Learn more…

Status of Schools
The Status of Schools is only applicable to families wishing to enroll in a school other than their neighborhood school. You are guaranteed enrollment at your neighborhood school regardless of the status.
Open: Space is possible. School is projected to be less than 90% enrolled. Applications will be placed in a lottery if there are more applicants than space available.
1-IN/1-OUT: Space is limited. School is projected to be 90% enrolled. Applications received will be placed in a PENDING file for consideration later in the spring or summer.
Closed: Space is unlikely. School is projected to be over 100% enrolled. A family may submit an open enrollment application for a closed school but applications will usually be denied.
All schools are closed for the 2017-18 school year except Sammamish High School and Highland Middle School.
