Transformation schools are one of the new school choice categories that taps into students’ individual interests, learning styles, and aspirations. These schools do not have academic entry requirements – they are open enrollment for students across the district.”  Selection into any Transformation School for the 2017-2018 school year requires a completed application submitted by January 31, 2017.  Learn more about Public School Choice here.
